Eight Ball Brewing launches first-ever can series

Craft brewer Eight Ball Brewing is canning its beer for the first time ever, and Greater Cincinnati beer lovers will soon be able to get their hands on it.

Bellevue-based Eight Ball is canning its Prodigal American Pale Ale starting Monday and releasing it in a can launch celebration in its Newport taproom adjacent to the Party Source on July 21. The brewery has hand-bottled beer in the past, but this is the first time it has released cans.

"Cans are the ideal packaging choice for our beers. We feel they are the best vessel to protect our beers from unwanted oxygen and light while having the advantage of being extra portable for our fans," brewmaster Mitch Dougherty said in a news release. "Simply put, cans mean better, fresher beer in the hands of more beer drinkers."
