Breckenridge Brewery: Yes they can
Cans of Breckenridge Brewery's Avalanche Ale began rolling out of the plant this week and into liquor stores, just in time to catch the heart of the summer season.
Breckenridge, which is borrowing its canning line from Ska Brewing Company in Durango, will also supply concert venues, golf courses and other places where glass bottles are not allowed or not convenient.
The company is the latest to try canning its craft brews, following Upslope Brewery in Boulder, which started canning its beer last fall. The Wynkoop Brewing Company is also planning a canny attack this summer.
