Thanks to COVID-19, 2020 has been a tough year for breweries around the world. But one Australian liquor retailer is lending support at Christmastime, with the country’s largest mixed beer package ever.
It’s an idea that couldn’t be more festive, and someone in the US needs to do something like this.
Available now for pre-sale at Craft Cartel, the 100 Can Case features a monster collection of 100 craft beers in cans (they call them tinnies in Australia) from 25 of the country’s best independent breweries.
That should be enough beer to weather Christmas as well as all the picnics (yep, it’s summer now in Australia), backyard barbecues and beach sessions that accompany the holidays “Down Under.”
Designed as the ultimate holiday gift for craft beer enthusiasts looking to support the brewery industry in the country, that just as in the US and UK, has been brutally impacted by the lockdowns imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Showcasing a wide variety of styles with zero filler, the Craft Cartel – 100 Can Case goes on sale this Thursday, November 26, but since the numbers being produced by Craft Cartel are strictly limited, this impressive holiday package could sell out during pre-sale.
And while this truly epic collection of craft beers will set you back a cool $499, it comes in a super limited custom-made timber box, and includes ten $20 vouchers that can be used on Craft Cartel’s website that may come in handy this Christmas.
