FINNEGANS has always been about more than slinging beer. We were founded with a missions to feed the hungry by selling you beer. For the last decade, our loyal FINNEGANS fans have made this dream a reality. We’re eternally thankful, and want to keep giving you more ways to help us do good. That’s why we introduced Blonde Ale last year. This year, we’re giving you a new way to drink your favorite FINNEGANS beer: Cans!
Adding cans to our line is about more that just giving you a new vessel to drink from. Cans are more environmentally friendly—they’re easier to recycle than glass, and if they are left behind, they won’t become a sharp hazard for people and animals. Because of this, cans can be taken places where glass bottles can’t be, like parks, beaches, golf courses—you name it! You may have forgotten that Minnesota does eventually become a beautiful summer wonderland perfect for spending time outdoors. Once our cans roll out, we’re pretty sure the weather will realize how great it is to sip a cold FINNEGANS on the beach and get its act together.
Not only are cans good for the environment; they’re also good for your taste buds. Don’t buy into those “aluminum” taste rumors: cans are lined to protect the beer inside from contacting the can itself, and they protect the beer from harsh sunlight better than any bottle can. (Sunlight can seriously compromise the taste of your beer.) The more you think about the benefits of cans, the more you wonder why the beer world starting using bottles in the first place. We’re hoping to help make CANverts of you and the entire beer world so we can keep our beers tasting better and keep mother nature happy!
Because we’re so excited about rolling out our new cans, we’re holding a contest for our loyal do-good drinkers: we want to see your most creative pictures of FINNEGANS cans! These CANdid™ photos could be you drinking FINNEGANs in an awesome location, or perhaps making art out of your empty cans. We hope our beer will get your creative juices flowing! The winner will get a case of FINNEGANS canned beer once every month for a whole year! Check our Facebook page starting May 1 for contest details.
So ask yourself, what CAN you do now that FINNEGANS is in cans? You could fry up a delicious bacon brunch, complete with a FINNEGANS Bloody Mary, and then use the empty can to collect the bacon grease. You could enjoy an always refreshing Blonde ale in a park from a can, where glass bottles are not permitted. While you’re camping, could put your cans of FINNEGANs in a cool stream, where they will be cooled down much faster than they would be in bottles. (Seriously, try this—especially if you’re in the mountains). You could even stack FINNEGANS cans like a cart castle, and then roll your old bottles at it for a little bit of FINNEGANS bowling!
We hope to make do-gooding CANverts out of all of you! Stay tuned for more FINNEGANS news, and start looking for our cans in stores.
Here’s to doing good.
