Lake Superior Brewing cans Kayak Kolsch, Mesabi Red

Lake Superior Brewing Co. announced last week that it is selling Kayak Kolsch and Mesabi Red in cans — as opposed to just bottles.

The brewery's keepers are making the shift to cans for ease of transport. Cans are lighter, won't break and can be crushed, new co-owner Lisa Blade said in a news release. It comes down to

"paying attention to the current lifestyle of craft beer lovers," she said.

Kayak Kolsch is the brewery's best-selling beer and will still be available in bottles. Mesabi Red was a retired flavor. It's one of Blade's favorites and one that fans of the brewery often request. Blade said they will be selling two can options: Kayak Kolsch as a regular, plus one limited edition beer — this time the Mesabi Red.

The beer is on tap at the brewery, and the cans will be sold at off-site liquor stores.
