Resurrection in cans to arrive mid-week

resurrection in cansBehold: A sea of canned gloriousness.

Can after can of Resurrection Ale sits, waiting to be shipped and sipped.

The shipping starts today, according to Tom Creegan of Brewer's Art, and should arrive mid-week.

Creegan and the rest of the Brewer's Art boys are gonna shotgun the first one, and play beer pong with the next few.

"That way, it'll all be done," Creegan said.

Ooooo! ...

Despite earlier worries, it looks like Brewer's Art decided to go with the design they showed Midnight Sun last month.

I'll check on the price, but I'm guessing it's still going to be about $10 per six-pack. And I'll try and get a list of places that will have it. But I'll bet it's safe to say the cans will be sold wherever the 750-milliliter bottles of Resurrection are sold.

So don't pester Brewer's Art with calls. Stay tuned and I'll share all the info with you here.

Excellent news. Those cans should start filling my recycle bin by the weekend.

This is what editors are for, Sam:

$10 a can, a four-pack, a six-pack, or a case? Or some other quantifier?

Alexander D. Mitchell IV -- as stated under the previous post, it will be about $10 per six pack. I updated this post as well.

I had a sample over the weekend. It was delicious. Yeah, I know, biased opinion...

i know what i'll be stocking up on before my tubing trip in harpers ferry this weekend.

Some people like it in the can

Not that there's anything wrong with that

Some people like Shirley's Honey Hole.

I know, I know, I just won't let it die. :-)

I see the t-shirts already

We like it in the can

Gay bar that serves only can beer.

"Do you want it in the can?"

"No, I'll drink it right here."

Can I suggest to all before they get disappointed in whatever comes out of the can?

Don't drink it from the can.

For the same reason you shouldn't drink it--or any decent beverage--from the bottle: You need the aromatics from the beer for a full appreciation. Open it, and then pour it into a glass. Or a goblet, or a mug, or a plastic cup, even. Just don't waste the great experience of that beer by quaffing it from the can.

Yeah, yeah, Tom says he's gonna "shotgun" it. He lives, eats, sleeps, and breathes the stuff, folks. He can do whatever he wants with it. But I'm wagering it's the only time he'll do so.

I don't think I'm going to drink mine at all. I'm going to make a shrine for it.

Any sightings yet?

Sam, I'm thinking a photo contest with the new Resurrection can. Have the readers take pictures of them drinking it in weird places or drinking it in weird situations. Just a thought. I will be drinking one, out of the can, that it comes in, hopefully by Thursday. Thanks, Volker.

Great idea, Jason. I'll get on this asap.

I can't wait to get it in the can!

Telling me not to drink it makes me want it ALL THE MORE. Go back to your firkins.

b-moregirl, what you lack in "beer drinking smarts" you more than make it for it in proper social etiquette, decent conversation, and lack of elbowing someone out of the way to get a picture of beer.

i've never met you, but i'm willing to bet that you do.

Resurrection has arrived! or at least it will sometime this afternoon.

I have 3 cases coming today and the first case is on me for the fellow Midnight Sunners. Actually, I have to charge you a penny by law.

For today and tomorrow, Resurrection will only be $1.50, I have some more coming tomorrow. Thank you Volker and I am looking forward to selling Resurrection.

Me thinks Mr. Zink may be getting a visit from yours truly this evening.

See you tomorrow--I'm tied up with other work at home tonight.

Just cracked open a can and all I can say is Fanflippintastic. Tastes exactly like it does from a goblet @ BA. Hats off to the BA boys. Now if I had one of them chili cheese dogs Id really be styling. Any input on if there will be a constant flow of cans from Royersford?
