Black Hog Brewing Co. Releases 12oz. Cans

Ginga Ninja, Easy Rye’ Da and Granola Brown Available Now

January 13, 2015

OXFORD, CT – Black Hog Brewing Co. has released 3 of their beers in 12oz. cans – Ginga Ninja (Red IPA brewed with fresh ginger), Easy Rye’ Da (Session Rye IPA) and their Granola Brown Ale. 6-packs of each style are now available at stores throughout Connecticut.

Head Brewer Tyler Jones began canning the beers the first week of January with the assistance of Iron Heart Canning, New England’s premier mobile canning company. “Cans are the best way to guarantee freshness in our beers, “ says Jones. “They’re better at protecting it from air and light, and they’re 100% recyclable – which is incredibly important to us.”

These new cans feature the graphic design and painting skills of New Haven artist Maximillian Toth. “Max is a wonderful friend of ours – and of the brewery – and a huge part in creating the look of Black Hog,” says owner Jason Sobocinski. “His art has really captured the essence of our beers.”

Black Hog Brewing Co. beers are distributed in Connecticut by Star Distributors, Inc. of West Haven and Hartford Distributors, Inc. of Manchester.

Founded by Tyler Jones and brothers Tom and Jason Sobocinski, Oxford, CT-based Black Hog Brewing Co. began distributing finely-crafted beers throughout Connecticut in July 2014. Black Hog is committed to crafting flavorful, drinkable beers, using the finest and freshest ingredients. Head Brewer Tyler Jones has pledged to support Connecticut farmers, and strives to use locally-produced ingredients in his beers as often as possible. Black Hog produces a variety of year-round and seasonal beers including Ginga’ Ninja (Red IPA with fresh ginger), Easy Rye’ Da (Rye IPA), Granola Brown Ale, and Nitro Coffee Milk Stout.
