    Charlotte, NC, September 2, 2013 – NoDa Brewing Company is excited to announce their entry into the package market with a roll out of 16 oz. cans of Jam Session, their pale ale, and Hop, Drop ‘n Roll, their signature IPA, in late September 2013.

    “Jam Session and Hop, Drop ‘n Roll are two of our most popular beers and having them available in a portable form (can) is the next logical step for us,” said Todd Ford, Co-Owner of NoDa Brewing Company. “Instead of the traditional 12 oz. cans, we have opted for a 16 oz. can. If you are going to drink a 16 oz. pint in restaurant or pub, why accept less from your can?”

    Initially, NoDa Brewing cans will be available at bottle shops, specialty markets, bars and restaurants in the Charlotte metro with a roll out to supermarket chains within the year. In addition to its current draft presence at Panthers games within the Bank of America Stadium, both Jam Session and Hop, Drop ‘n Roll will be available at the stadium in cans starting in October.

    “Cans basically act as small kegs with many of the same benefits including complete light protection, which minimizes the risk of ‘skunking’ the beer,” said Chad Henderson, Head Brewer of NoDa Brewing Company. “The cans are also more durable, easier to transport than bottles and more environmentally friendly. In past years the inner lining of cans has evolved so the fear of off-flavor from the can material is no longer an issue and the canning line itself will allow for lower levels of dissolved oxygen increasing shelf life for the product.”

    About NoDa Brewing Company:

    NoDa Brewing Company currently has five year-round beers and multiple seasonal offerings available on-tap at local bars & restaurants and the brewery tap room. Its on-site tap room sells beer by the glass & take-home growlers and provides brewery tours as well as hosts special events. Look and ask for NoDa on tap at your local restaurant and bar.

    This is fantastic. It will be nice not having to go refill my growler every time, though I will probably still do it anyways...

    Hop, Drop 'N Roll is very good and Jam Session is sensational. Very much looking forward to this expansion, and to having some decent beer at a Carolina Panthers game.

    These are great brews and canning is a real commitment. I'm proud of Noda's ability to seize the moment and the Charlotte area's (actually lots of N.C.) embrace of this quality group.
