Chicago-based craft brewer Finch’s Beer Co. has chosen global beverage can maker Rexam to produce 16oz. cans for its lineup of beers.
Finch’s has already launched Secret Stache Stout, Hardcore Chimera, Finch’s Pale Ale and Nuclear Winter in Rexam cans with Sobek & Set, Fascist Pig and Threadless coming soon, followed by Wet Hot American Wheat this summer.
Finch’s began the transition in the middle of 2014, and plans to have all eight of its existing labels and two new labels in Rexam cans by mid-2015.
The aluminium cans block out all light and oxygen, which helps preserve the beer’s taste and freshness for longer. They are durable and portable, meaning they are often permitted at venues and locations where glass is not; their lightweight nature can help reduce shipping costs; and they are highly recyclable and sustainable, Rexam claimed.
Rexam BCNA’s sector director Claude Marbach said: “We are pleased to establish a relationship with this fast-growing local brewery which allows us to provide the perfect package for its craft beers.”
Finch’s Beer Co. founder Ben Finch added: “We are committed to locally sourcing as many materials as possible, including our tall boy cans which are now printed right here in Chicago. We are happy to be the first Chicago-based craft brewer to partner with Rexam. It just makes sense for us since the can plant is so close to both our facilities here in Chicago. This relationship delivers outstanding value to our business and helps us ensure we are providing our unique craft beers to our customers in a great-looking package.”
