taking that route, and this week the Ithaca Beer Company announced it has taken delivery of canning equipment that will allow it to do likewise -- and you are helping pay for it.
The 20-year-old company recently received a $175,000 state economic development grant, funded by taxpayers, to build its canning line. This comes about two years after its original plant was expanded to accommodate a bottling and canning operation.
It is expected that Ithaca will begin canning its signature Flower Power IPA sometime this month, according to marketing director Gregg Stacy. He said it will be available in six and 12 packs of 12-ounce cans. By Memorial Day, he said, Ithaca Beer will be offering Apricot Wheat in 12-ounce four packs.
