(San Francisco, CA) – Tucked quietly in an article about San Francisco Bay Area oyster stouts…
21st Amendment is putting its Oyster Point stout (made only with shells) in cans, which will be available in January.
Co-owner, Shaun O’ Sullivan, also clarified the nature of some recent label approvals for BeerPulse. They show 21st Amendment as the brewing entity producing the cans.
It’s an administrative change. We just changed to an alternating proprietorship license with Cold Spring. Before it was a straight contract, we bought the beer they brewed. It’s really no different now. We are brewing our beer there, but now we pay the lower excise tax on what we just produce. Before we were counted in with everything Cold Spring produced that pushed us unto the higher tax bracket so to speak. This really helps us out with keeping the margins in line.
