Lone Tree Brewing Launches Storied Beer Series In Cans

LONE TREE, CO— Lone Tree Brew­ing will be unveil­ing the first two beers from their Branch­ing Out and Hop­py Lit­tle Trees Project series in cans. The move to dis­con­tin­ue their 22-oz bomber pro­gram in favor of 12-oz cans is just one part of the evo­lu­tion of Lone Tree’s growth tra­jec­to­ry for 2019.

Last year, the brew­ery increased brew­house pro­duc­tion by 40 per­cent, year-over-year. The increase in pro­duc­tion led to the addi­tion of four new 40 BBL fer­men­ta­tion tanks, as well as a new can label­ing machine.

With the addi­tion of a label­ing machine for small batch can­ning runs, we will be able to bring some of our more exper­i­men­tal beers to thirsty beer drinkers across our dis­tri­b­u­tion net­works in a more portable for­mat,” says Den­nis Stack, Direc­tor of Sales and Mar­ket­ing at Lone Tree Brew­ing Com­pa­ny.

Pineap­ple Sour, the brewery’s first beer com­ing out of the Branch­ing Out series, will make its debut in the Lone Tree tast­ing room just in time for Memo­r­i­al Day week­end. At a ses­sion­able 4.5 per­cent ABV, this refresh­ing­ly crisp blonde ale is tart with a sub­tle pineap­ple fin­ish. Only avail­able in cans, this sour is per­fect for any out­door activ­i­ty.

The Pineap­ple Sour belongs to Lone Tree’s Branch­ing Out series of small-batch, spe­cial­ty beers. Pineap­ple Sour fol­lows Bière de Print­emps and India Pale Lager in the Branch­ing Out series, though this refresh­ing sour is the first to debut in cans, which includes refreshed art­work from the brewery’s rebrand via Anthem Brand­ing.

Lone Tree will also release a Cen­ten­ni­al IPA for the Hop­py Lit­tle Trees Project, in cans in June. This is the sixth beer to come out of the fresh year-round rotat­ing IPA series and the first of its kind to be released in cans.

We have seen great suc­cess from can­ning our Dou­ble IPA but one thing miss­ing from our canned options was a sin­gle IPA,” explains Stack. “The Hop­py Lit­tle Trees Project adds this to our offer­ing and expands upon it with the rotat­ing IPA style con­cept. This series will always be an IPA but will rotate not just the hops, but the type of IPA.”

At 6.8 per­cent ABV, this sin­gle hop IPA fea­tures Cen­ten­ni­al hops, which boasts cit­rus aro­mas. A pleas­ant hop bit­ter­ness rounds out this high­ly drink­able, full-fla­vored IPA.

Canned six-packs of both beers will be avail­able across Col­orado while sup­plies last.
