21st Amendment Cans Beers
By Jay Brooks

Shaun O’Sullivan and Nico Freccia, co-owners of the 21st Amendment Brewery, Restaurant and Bar in San Francisco, proudly present their latest creation: craft beer in cans! Two of O’Sullivan’s award-winning beers, IPA and Watermelon Wheat, went on sale in cans in early May. Beer cans, introduced in 1935, were very popular before falling out of favor in the 1980s. But the technology has now improved dramatically and removed the metallic flavors that previously plagued cans.

In 2002, Colorado brewer Oskar Blues released Dale’s Pale Ale, and the modern age of craft cans began. 21st Amendment’s beers are the first Bay Area craft brews in cans. Both beers are excellent, with virtually no difference between the draft and canned ales.
