One of the state’s summer craft beer staples is coming to market in a new container.

Oberon as 12-ounce can

Bell’s Brewery in Galesburg will release its summer wheat beer Oberon in 12-ounce cans for the first time this summer, likely hitting store shelves in June.

The cans will be in 12 packs at retailers and feature the same design as the larger cans.

The 12-ounce cans will be released across Bell’s distribution footprint.

The brew is a year-round beer in the Florida, California, Arizona and Puerto Rico markets.

“Cans can go more places than glass, and it’s a much more convenient packaging option — one that we believe our fans will really enjoy,” said Laura Bell, VP, Bell’s Brewery.

Oberon options

Bell’s is already distributing Oberon in kegs, 12-ounce bottles, 16-ounce cans and mini-kegs.

Bottles come in six and 12 packs, while 16-ounce cans come in four packs.

Other cans

Bell’s also distributes several other beers, including Two Hearted IPA, in 16-ounce cans.
