Half Acre smashes discontinued cans like it's nobody's business

Brewing beer sounds like a great gig, but the folks over at Half Acre took it to a new level Friday with a little destructive workplace fun. The brewery had a pallet of discontinued cans, and before dumping them off to be recycled, Gapers Block noted that the staff went a little wild, complete with a masked man running head-on into the stack of empties. Sounds like a pretty fun way to break up the Friday afternoon slump. 

From the video, you can tell the discontinued cans are GoneAway, Half Acre’s India Pale Ale. The brew went through a few swift name changes, initially after members of the Lakota Native American community reached out to express disappointment over the original name.

If watching the video makes you thirsty for a cold one, head up to Half Acre’s taproom and order a round of GoneAway, no chanting required.
