Press Release: This fall, JDub’s Brewing Company cans ”Poolside” Kölsch and Up Top! IPA will get a new look. The “refreshed” can designs are reflective of the companies meaning and current standing in the market place. Owner Jeremy Joerger, “It’s about time for a “face lift” for the cans. As we grow and evolve, it’s important to look not just to the future for ways to innovate and stay relevant, but also at what we are currently doing and make sure nothing about the brand is stagnant. Also, I wanted to evolve from putting our core values of Quality, Innovation and Culture on the cans to what this brand truly represents, living the life you love and following your dream. That is my story and what I want this brand to mean to people. I’m stoked about these cans and think they reflect what we are and continue to be, a growing, quality Southeast brand.”
