BentSpoke Brewing to Move Production of Australia’s Most Popular IPA into Wide Lip Can Lids

With world class beer experiences at the heart of everything they do BentSpoke Brewing has led innovation in beer packaging with 360-degree rip lid cans since 2016. Due to a worldwide halt in production of these lids the Canberra brewer has had to find an alternative to keep up with rapidly increasing distribution. From March, BentSpoke is moving most of its award-winning range into premium wide lip cans to continue its current flavour and aroma experience.


Having brewed Australia’s favourite IPA Crankshaft three years in a row; Head Brewer and Co-Founder Richard Watkins has always put customer experience first at BentSpoke.


“We have always loved our 360 lids that have lived our mantra of bending the rules of beer. With these supply issues we are once again scouring the world for the next great innovation in beer packaging that can keep up with our beer.”


To symbolise its commitment to innovation and never settling BentSpoke is maintaining its hoppiest beer in the core range, Sprocket in the remaining supply of 360 lids. Crankshaft, Barley Griffin, Red Nut, Easy Ale and Mort’s Gold will all go into wide lip cans. As will the sought-after Drifter, Free Wheeler and Bending Spoke series.


With no changes to the brewing or packaging process for any beer the entire range will maintain the same great flavour and aroma. BentSpoke also looks forward to releasing new beers and bringing back old favourites in the new lids throughout the year.


“With our new lids you might want to decant our beer into a glass at home. At BentSpoke we always have been and still are advocates for drinking straight from the can!”
