Idle Hands Craft Ales will release a rotating lineup of beers in limited four-pack runs, starting Monday with Four Seam, a tropical, hazy New England IPA, and the popular Adelais, a crisp pilsner.
“We decided to move toward canning because that is where the market has been heading for a couple years now,” said Chris Tkach, the brewery’s founder. “Cans are also a better package for the beer because they are 100 percent light and oxygen impervious, both [of which are] enemies of freshness.”
New cans of Four Seam will be partnered with a different beer each month, starting with Adelais. April will bring cans of Proeme, a dry-hopped farmhouse ale, followed by Heide, a Helles lager, in May.
The Malden brewery will start with canning 125 cases of each beer per month, so for now, you’ll only be able to pick these cans up at the taproom.
