Where in the Arizona Beer World? From Where in the World? What and Why? Also, What of It?

Yes, I was out of the country for a time, but this was not taken on my vacation (and yet it fits in).

Do you know where in the beer world this photo was taken? What is this? Where is it now? How does it relate to Arizona beer?
The concept is simple. We post a picture that is relevant to the Arizona Phoenix area beer scene and you try and identify it. Sometimes there will be a larger story involved, but often there will not. So, for glory and a tip of the glass next time we see you. Please, no social media cheating!

Answer after the jump!


The correct answer comes from Chris from the popular social network platform, Facebook.

Molto buono!
The Italian made canning line is in it's final testing phases at Four Peaks Wilson. If you get a can of Sunbur filled with Kilt Lifter than you know you got the employee hook-up.

What will go in these cans? Eventually all of Four Peaks core profile. Officially, Peach Ale will be the first new run. 8th Street and Raj are sure to follow. But what of that wondrous gourd based phenom? Will you be able to buy it in a grocery store clad in metal?

The answer is a big fat maybe. Cans have been designed. You will first likely be able to buy cans at the brewery only. This will enable the brewery to manage production while freeing up valuable kegs for bars and restaurants. It will also mean that cans will be fresh and won't include the hassle of the mad rush for growler fills. This was a strategy employed in the past with Hop Knot.

The tidbit? Four Peaks was able to strengthen their Minnesota ties by visiting Surly Brewing as part of their vetting process. Surly, known for it's aggressively hopped canned beers, was among the first to use a Comac canning line.

  1. As the holiday became more secular the party remained, and as the traditions evolved we ended up with green beer. beer tackers
