Facing Can Shortage, Surly Beer Unveils "Cantyhose"

Toilet paper shortages. Coin shortages. And now, apparently, aluminum can shortages.

It'sa coronavirus-era problem facing the beverage industry, specifically where soda, energy drinks and beer are concerned. But a Twin Cities brewery has come up with an inventive workaround.

Meet "Cantyhose," the nickname for the rather creative solution Surly Brewing Company unveiled over the weekend. 

The company says in a news releasethat they happened to have "a warehouse full of (unused) cans for brands that changed looks, were overstocked, or retired" — all of which they'll be filling up with beer and covering up with pre-printed sleeves matching what's inside.
