Thorn Brewing Co. Adds Cans to Beer Lineup

SAN DIEGO, CA — Thorn Brewing Co. is excited to officially announce Thorn beer is available in cans throughout San Diego County. Thorn is now brewing in their new Barrio Logan location which not only houses a brand new brew system but also a tasting room and canning line where they are packaging their four most popular beers in 12-oz cans; Relay IPA, Barrio Baja-Style Lager, Foreplay Belgian Blonde, and Rock the Pale Ale.

CEO and co-founder, Dennis O’Connor said, “We are excited to finally have packaged product in cans so that Thorn beer will be more widely available throughout San Diego.”

Thorn Brewing also recently signed on with Stone Distributing to further expand their reach within San Diego County and beyond.

“Our relationship with Stone is a huge step forward in sharing our product with more people as well,” O’Connor explains. By partnering with Stone, Thorn hopes to have a greater impact in the craft beer community while bringing their beer to a wider audience. Thorn has always been known for their passion and commitment when it comes to craft beer.

“I love being part of the craft beer movement,” Brewmaster and co-founder, Eric O’Connor said, “Helping to start and grow a small independent brewery like Thorn is one of the best things I could have ever hoped  to do with my life. I count myself to be very fortunate.”

Look for their cans to be popping up at bottle shops, liquor stores and grocery outlets around San Diego and if you don’t see them at your favorite store, make sure to let them know you want Thorn beer.
