Four Corners Brewing Co. will hit the friendly retail shelves for the first time this weekend. The brewery in Trinity Groves with the proud rooster painted on its not-so-broad-side has been busy canning all three of its All Day Ales, which will be available in 12-ounce six-packs featuring a new can design with fully removable lids.
The removable lids are the first for Texas craft beer. The design is called "360 End" and is manufactured in Texas via Crown Holdings. The brewery does the pouring and packaging in-house with a Laverne And Shirley-esque line (sans the bottles). The fully opened top allows craft beer drinkers to enjoy the full aroma and flavor of the beers. It also solves the totally annoying problem of a bee getting trapped under the lid.
Four Corners will initially release three beers: Local Buzz, made with locally sourced honey, El Chingón, an IPA with hop machismo, and Block Party Porter.
Locally you can find Four Corners at North Oak Cliff Beer and Wine, Bolsa Mercado, Lonestar Beverages and Parkit Market. Four Corners can also be found at Central Markets, Whole Foods, Kroger, Spec's, Total Wine, H-E-B and Walgreens. Yes, Walgreens.
Look for the beer on shelves beginning March 21 for around $8.99 to $9.99.
