A Michigan brewery is set to roll out three beers in cans.

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales will launch a new canning line for its wild ales beginning in April. The first beers off the line will be year-round favorites, Bam Bière and Calabaza Blanca.

Jolly Pumpkin also is releasing Hyrrokkin, the first release of a new fruited seasonal saison series.

“I’m super excited to be able to bring some of our favorite beers, such as Bam Bière and Calabaza Blanca, and a new favorite, Hyrrokkin, into cans,” said Jolly Pumpkin founder Ron Jeffries. “They are lightweight, convenient and environmentally friendly — perfect for any occasion, indoors or outdoors.”

Bam Bière is a low-calorie farmhouse ale that is golden in color, naturally cloudy, can-conditioned and dry-hopped for a balance of spicy malts, hops and yeast. Bam Bière was named one of the top 25 beers in America by Men’s Journal and has a RateBeer score of 95.

Calabaza Blanca is a low-calorie farmhouse witbier brewed in Belgium’s bière blanche tradition. Spiced with orange peel and coriander, this tart beer has won gold in the Hong Kong International Beer Awards, was named a “Top 50 Beer” by The Fifty Best and is rated the 12th best witbier in the world by RateBeer.

Hyrrokkin is a tart, low-calorie foeder-aged saison fruited with blood orange and ginger.

All three beers will be available in 16-ounce four-packs at craft beer retailers throughout Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, Texas and Arizona.

Based in Dexter, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales also operates taprooms in Grand Rapids, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Royal Oak, Traverse City and Hyde Park, Chicago.
