One of the South Bay's biggest breweries, The Dudes' Brewing Co., will soon release two of their flagship beers in cans at stores and bars across Los Angeles.

According to the Dudes, the brewery is currently canning its Double Trunk double IPA and their Grandma's Pecan brown ale in 16-ounce cans.

Both beers will be sold in stores as four-packs.

Once distributed, the cans should begin showing up in local South Bay stores in the coming weeks, according to the Dudes' Facebook page.

To celebrate the release of their canned beer, The Dudes' Brewing will also hold multiple release parties across Los Angeles. Locally, a can release party will be held at Select Beer Store on Saturday, Aug. 24 from noon to 10 p.m.

I think the Patch should discontinue the "From the Web" (by Taboola) content. It often features pure fiction posing as news from fringe website such as Newsmax. Complete hogwash. Please reconsider this content, as it isn't remotely related to actual "news".
