Starcut Ciders Transitions to Can-Only Packaging

ELK RAPIDS, Mich. – Starcut Ciders, a division of Short’s Brewing Company, announces the transition of their packaging exclusively to cans and draft product, along with the release of their new rotating cider, Mosa. Based in Northern Michigan, the company sees this change to their lineup as a step towards engaging customers enjoying activities better suited for non-glass containers.

Short’s Brewing Company installed a new KHS canner with the capacity to fill 225 cans per minute alongside additional equipment manufactured by Design Machine Manufacturing, Mumm Products, Arrowhead Conveyance, and Ska Fabricating in July 2018. The installation of this new canning line expanded the capacity for high-quality, durable cans, which complements the active lifestyle for many cider drinkers.

Along with the transition to cans, Starcut Ciders is introducing a brand new rotating cider. Mosa (4.3% ABV) is a crisp, refreshing blend of Hard Cider made from Michigan apples and sweet orange juice. This cider is slightly hazy and light orange in color, a true mimosa in cider form.

Starcut Ciders cans are now available throughout Michigan, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin, with Mosa distribution occurring throughout the next two weeks.
