NORTH CENTER — Fear not beer lovers, the predicted shortage of Half Acre's beloved Daisy Cutter Pale Ale has been averted.
A fire over Memorial Day weekend at the warehouse of the brewery's can supplier had Half Acre warning customers that Daisy Cutter could be hard to come by in anything other than draft or growler format.
Patty Wetli delivers the good news for Half Acre fans:
But a truckload of cans arrived at Half Acre Tuesday morning, after the supplier sent can designs to a manufacturer in Texas, according to a Half Acre employee reached by phone.
Brewery staff is already filling the more than 6,000 cans shipped from Texas, the employee said.
Daisy Cutter is one of Half Acre's few year-round brews. At noon on Friday, the brewery, 4257 N. Lincoln Ave., will release the results of a collaboration with Maine Brewing Co., the Great Plain Jane ale.
