The metallic element Aluminum has been good to man. At least we think so here at Big Sky Brewing Company. For starters, aluminum allows us to take our beer places glass bottles can’t go. Here in Missoula, Montana our first foray into aluminum was back in 2004, when we introduced the aluminum bottle to North America. We’ve been hard at work ever since, and 10 years later we’re please to announce the arrival of our new Summer Honey can.
Today we’re saluting the history of Aluminum: then and now. Here’s to Atomic Number 13 and looking forward to the dog days of Montana Summer.
