GoodLife will be canning soon, too

GoodLife BrewingJust the other day I reported on the expansion of Bend’s GoodLife Brewing, and in today’s Bend Bulletin (behind the paywall unfortunately) comes the word that they’ll be canning too:

GoodLife Brewing Co. has expanded its production capacity as part of a plan to increase sales of bottled beer in Oregon and begin canning beer by March.

“We’ll be the first ones in Bend to do that,” GoodLife co-owner Ty Barnett said of canning beer. Additional capacity will also allow the brewery to sell more beer in Seattle and produce more small-batch brews, Barnett said Monday.

Barnett said GoodLife will use a mobile canning company to begin producing 12-ounce cans of two beers in March: Sweet As Pacific Ale and Descender I.P.A.

“It’s a canning machine on the back of a truck,” Barnett said of Portland-based Craft Canning. “We’re definitely going to be one of his first clients.”

My first thought is if Worthy gets their canning line running before March, then they’ll be the first in Bend to can their beer…

But either way, this will be a cool addition to the local beer offerings.
