Brewers at West Sixth Brewing Company have announced plans to begin canning a second beer next month.
Deliberation Amber, an amber ale, will join the downtown brewery's IPA beers on shelves and in coolers next month, according to a press release.
"This beer has been available on draft in Lexington for a few months, and the response has been tremendous. We're excited to be able to offer it to our fans in a can," said co-founder Brady Barlow.
West Sixth is the only brewery in Kentucky to can its beers. The can design, which was designed by local artist Brian Turner of Cricket Press, resembles the look of the IPA can with an obviously different color, and the use of grains instead of hops in the design.
The West Sixth amber is available immediately on draft throughout central Kentucky and will soon be available in cans at stores throughout Kentucky. It will be distributed through Clark Distributing in central and southern Kentucky and River City Distributing in Louisiville.
"Lexington's response to our IPA has been fantastic – we're selling our beer as fast as we can make it," so co-founder Joe Kuosman. "We can't wait to introduce our amber to a larger market."
West Sixth Brewing Company is located at 501 W. Sixth St. For more information, visit their website.
