Samuel Adams to Offer New Can Design to Other Brewers

Unless you've been in a coma, you know that Boston Beer Company has decided to start canning their Samuel Adams beer. Now, other brewers will be able to also can their beer using Boston Beer Company's patent-pending design... but only if you are technically defined as a "Craft" brewer:

Jim Koch says: 

"We’ve decided to make the patent-pending design available, without any royalty or license fee, to all craft brewers [as defined by the Brewers Association] who would like to use this can. We’re still working out the details with Ball, our can manufacturer, but we anticipate that any craft brewer will be able to purchase this unique can from Ball sometime this fall depending on how things go at Ball."
