Somebody once asked: “Can a beer change your life?”

Good question.

The gut says: “My mood, yes. My life? Hmmm… not sure. “

The optimist inside says: “Well that’s a worthy mission, let’s make it so.”

The pragmatist says: “Nah, too heavy a burden to bear.”

The artist says: “With the right ingredients, at the right time and place, with a little luck and a lot of love, certainly.”

The shrink asks: “Why do you think you need to change your life?”

At Worthy, we shoot for changing lives, in a positive way of course, but on a work-a-day basis we’re happy to simply enhance a customer’s mood.  If we can help a guy or gal shake off the blues and make the moment more enjoyable, in our view, mission accomplished.

And, yet, now and then, you get feedback from a customer, like the below. We don’t know that Stephanie’s life has been changed. We do know, here at Worthy, that when we get feedback like Stephanie’s, our lives are changed, for the better. This is the kind of love that keeps us going, on the sunny side of the street, heads up, eyes open, with our hearts full of joy, and our heads full of faith.

Thank you Stephanie.

But we don’t know when we’ll get to Arkansas!

Subject: Fan MailI am writing to you today to tell you how much I adore your company and beers. I believe that Worthy is the creator of the finest beers in the world. I feel like I am in paradise every time I pop open one of your beers. I particularly love Lights Out with Prefunk coming in a very close second.The very first sip is always so smooth, refreshing and immediately helps all of the stress from a 12 hour shift as a Registered Nurse in Labor and Delivery melt away. I have built so much trust in your company as you deliver five star excellence every time.Don’t even get me started on the packaging, I love it and think it’s just lovely to look at and I have a few cans that I have made flower vases and other decor projects as well as some extras I use to decorate the bar area of my home.

As a very busy wife, mother and nurse it’s so nice to know that there is someone I can count on to help me relax and enjoy the evening after all the babies, dinners, PTA meetings, and sport practices are over and my child is bathed and tucked snugly into bed.

I am such a fan of your company because I know that Worthy always creates the finest and most refreshing brews on the market today. I have recommended your beers to my family and friends. I always serve your beers at all our gatherings and even gave some in gift baskets to my family, friends and co-workers this past holiday season, which turned out to be a HUGE hit!

I just wish there was a place to buy your brews closer to home so I wouldn’t have to go out of state to get my fix or rely on my sister who lives in Oregon to bring me some when she comes to visit.

Thank you for creating the finest beer a woman could ever ask for and I look forward to drinking more of your beers in the future! Please keep up the good work into the new year.

Can We? Yes. Will We? Yes. But When?

Can we can? Yes, we can.

Our Vimercati canning machine is ready to produce over 3,500 cans per hour.

Our beer’s ready.  We’ll be canning Worthy IPA, East Side Pale Ale, Kolsch and Lights Out Stout.

Our cartons are ready. Our labels are ready. Our team is ready.  Our grocery store and bottle shop accounts are ready.

The sun’s shining.  You’re having fun hiking, biking, boating, floating, touring and chillaxin.  And you’re working up a mighty thirst. And you want Worthy.

So when can you enjoy Worthy beer in a 12 oz. can?

Answer: when we get our … cans.

To paraphrase King Richard III, “My kingdom for a can!”

We were originally set to crank up our Italian engineered “Maserati” of canning lines in late July.  You don’t want to hear excuses any more than we want to detail them.  But we ran into a few hiccups with The Feds over the labels, had to tweak a word here, an image there, and were all set to pull the trigger but ran into a hitch with our can supplier on the color quality.  We’re getting that fixed, pronto.




Drats! That’s the sound of can-do “Beer.Boom.Done.” bravado colliding violently with the cool, quiet calmness of Beetopianism.

Bottom line: Mid August.  We’ll be rolling out our Worthy IPA and East Side Pale first.  Soon after that we’ll be canning our Lights Out Stout and Kolsch.  Check out the labels.

We’re very excited to get the show on the road. Our very first purchase — even before we poured our foundation for our brewery-restaurant — was our Mother of All Craft canning lines. We selected the Vimercati because of it’s sterling record for quality.  And we’re big believers in the hop flavor preservation, recyclability, tote-ability and chill-ability benefits of cans.

But we’ll just have to wait a bit longer. In the meantime, enjoy your hikes, bikes, boats and floats. And imagine an ice chest, or cooler, or back pack full of Worthy’s finest canned beers waiting for you at the end of the trail.
