Six Mile Bridge Beer launches canned beer for summer

Cans are so hot right now, and you know what I love more than drinking fresh beer out of cans? The joy I feel when breweries get their products into more hands thanks to easily transportable packaging.

That is exactly what Six Mile Bridge Beer is doing this weekend. Head to Maryland Heights this Saturday, June 2 for its first canned beer release and kickoff to summer (though summer has definitely been around for a couple weeks now).

Co-owners Ryan and Lindsay Sherring and team are throwing a huge party to celebrate this rad achievement. In addition to buying 16-ounce cans to take home, party-goers can rock out to a DJ, win door prizes, grab grub at food trucks and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow can enthusiasts.

Can’t make it to the brewery this weekend? Keep your eye out for these three canned beers in select retailers:

1. Irish Red Ale with Honey
It’s not March, and nobody cares. This medium-bodied, amber colored, 5.5 percent beer provides a lovely malt backbone of biscuit and toffee, a touch of citrus hoppines, and just the right amount of honey for a nice, dry finish.

2. Bavarian Hefeweizen
Perfect for this hot weather, this 5.2 percent German wheat beer is true to tradition with its unfiltered appearance and banana- and clove-driven aromatics. It’s fluffy, fruity and finishes clean and crisp.

3. DDH Citra IPA
This beer's motto: More hops for flavor and aroma, less for bittering. Grapefruit and tropical fruit drive the aroma, while explosive flavors of sweet melon, juicy passion fruit and zesty citrus drive the hop-forward flavors of this 6 percent beer.
