Anheuser-Busch plant in NH plans for canned beer

The Associated Press

MERRIMACK — The Anheuser-Busch plant is planning to build an addition to produce canned beer.

The Telegraph of Nashua reports the Merrimack Planning Board has approved construction of a 5,300-square-foot brewing facility and 50,000 square feet in warehouse and packaging buildings.

Canned beer is making a comeback, as new technologies such as polymer linings have allowed beer to be stored longer in cans without acquiring a metallic taste.

The Merrimack plant was opened in 1970. It is one of 12 U.S. breweries owned by Anheuser-Busch, the world's largest beer company, and is one of three breweries that host the company's famous Clydesdale horses.
