August 1, 2009, Boonville, CA -
Anderson Valley Brewing Company (“AVBC”) is excited to announce the release of world-famous, award-winning Boont Amber Ale packaged in cans. Known both for their award winning beers and commitment to green business practices, packaging in cans is another step towards reducing the overall environmental footprint. AVBC cans take on a new look for the brewery, but the beer inside is still the Legendary Boonville Beer.
Cans require less energy to ship and use more recycled and less virgin materials than glass. Cans can be recycled many times in their lifetime. Cans get colder quicker, are lighter to carry, and crush easily to be packed in and out of the wilderness. The 6-pack holder is recyclable and made in the USA. Cans are better for the beer as well. Even brown glass allows light to penetrate and with a larger volume of headspace, these two factors will speed up oxidation. Cans allow zero light, and have less headspace. Think of a can as a keg in your hand.
Boont Amber Ale is a medium bodied pale ale with a beautiful copper color, a robust head, and the rich flavor of caramel malt. At 5.8% ABV and 15 IBU, this very smooth and exceptionally drinkable beer is excellent with steaks, chicken, pasta, and other flavorful meals.
Boont Amber Ale is a Silver Medal award winning beer from the Great American Beer Festival, in the American-Style Amber/Red Ale category and was named the “best beer brewed in Northern California,” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
As with all of our products, Boont Amber Ale is never sterile filtered nor heat pasteurized, and should be stored in refrigeration. However, to fully enjoy its rich and complex flavor, it should be served between 40° and 45°F
