Whitman Brewing, 20 Lake Ave. in Saratoga Springs, announced the release of its first canned product, New World Water.
The new canning line was scheduled for setup by the manufacturer, Cask Global Canning Solutions, based out of Alberta, Canada, just days before the border was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This delayed the first canning run, but after video meetings with Cask, Head Brewer Nick Meyer had the machine up and running, the company said.
New World Water, a 5.14 percent ABV hard seltzer, is conditioned with pureed strawberries, giving it a subtle pink hue and a slightly tart fruit flavor.
People must be 21 and older to purchase brewery products and masks and proper social distancing are required.
