Global Can shortage

During these difficult times, many obstacles have emerged and currently the brewing community is experiencing an aluminum can shortage. We at Lone Tree Brewing wanted to let our fans know that we are working hard to keep beer on the shelves. However, you may notice some of our cans will look slightly different than they typically do as we utilize cans from many irregular sources. Rest assured, the beer will remain true and we will continue to provide quality craft beer to our community.

Many cheers to our friends!
