We did this in collaboration with a local news marketing agency called “The BUZZ in Your Community” who designed the can and worked to supply the local honey from area beekeepers.  Using local honey through the process was a key factor to our mission to continue to be as earth-conscious with our brewing process. Together with our solar powered brewery, water re-purposing and saving systems, we are doing our part to keep making great beer while being kind to our planet.”
