Ballast Point Sculpin IPA in a Can

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA in a can

San Diego’s Ballast Point Brewing Co. is now canning its first beer, the popular Sculpin IPA, based on an image it posted on Facebook.

Sculpin has previously been available only in 12 oz. and 22 oz. bottles and on draft. Oskar Blues Brewing Co. started a craft-beer-can revolution when it decided to can all of its beer, proving that “good beer” can come in aluminum cans. And now that consumers are a bit more accustomed to seeing craft beer in cans, more and more brewers are doing the can thing.

Lots of beer nerds still prefer bottles over cans. (I’m one of them.) But cans do have their advantages. They’re smaller and stackable, so they take up less space and can be more portable. They don’t shatter. They’re lighter when they’re empty, making them easier to carry back to beer retailers for recycling. And they block out light, which can age beer quickly and decrease freshness.
