St. Louis — Brew Hub, a company led by a team of beer industry executives and craft brewing experts, will begin packaging Keybilly Island Ale – their craft beer brewed with authentic, world-renowned Key lime juice – in 12-ounce glass bottle six packs. The new packaging will be available in the South Florida and Orlando markets beginning today.
Keybilly Island Ale is the first beer in Brew Hub’s Craft Collection, a series of distinct craft beers the company brews. In addition to the new 12-ounce bottles, the beer will continue to be available in both can and draft packaging. The beer is brewed at the company’s newly expanded brewery in Lakeland, Florida.
“The demand for Keybilly has far exceeded our expectations, and we’re excited to bring another option to the marketplace,” said Tim Schoen, founder and CEO of Brew Hub. “While the desire for craft beer in cans continues to grow, there’s still tremendous interest in bottles, and we’re happy to meet that need.”
“It’s been fun to watch the brand grow from an idea into a full-line of packaged beer,” said “Paradise” Pat Kennedy, the home brewer who created Keybilly. “As the summer approaches, nothing looks more refreshing than a cooler packed full of ice-cold Keybilly bottles.”
