At Wicklow Wolf, our mission is to brew exceptional beers without compromise and with true passion. Our Crossbreed Series allows us to celebrate that passion with friends. We were delighted to welcome our friends from Brennans Bread to brew something special with sustainability in mind.
Introducing Sliced Can, the latest release in our Crossbreed Series. ‘Sliced Can’ is a Craft Lager brewed using surplus Brennans Family Pan.
When we first discussed brewing a Crossbreed Series collaboration, we wanted a beer that is brewed to do good and ‘Sliced Can’ does just that. Made using surplus Brennans Family Pan as a substitute for malted barley, helping to reduce food waste.
Sliced Can was brewed and packaged sustainably using electricity generated by our 120kw of Solar Panels on the roof of the brewery. Find out more about our solar panel installation here.
At Wicklow Wolf we made the move to cans in late 2019 and this collaboration with Brennans Bread is no different. Since Aluminium is infinitely recyclable, canning our beers gives us a better beer and a more sustainable future.
As a collaborative effort, we are furthering our sustainable commitments with the release of Sliced Can. We are planting one Native Irish tree in Wicklow for every twelve cans sold. To date we have planted over 5000 native Irish trees on our hop farm in the Wicklow Mountains.
Our collaboration and passion for sustainability enables us to plant even more trees. This further reduces our carbon footprint in addition to increasing the biodiversity of our home, Wicklow.
Expect this low calorie, vegan lager to be light and refreshing with fruity notes and a malty backbone. Enjoy and please drink responsibly!
Find Sliced Can in all good independent off licences, Supervalu and at the Wicklow Wolf Taproom.
