Consumers agree, Nitro is Awesome!

Over 95 percent of beer drinkers, enjoy beers on Nitro. Thanks to Ball’s new Widget Can, this experience is available beyond the bar stool. With the Widget Can, a plastic insert is placed at the bottom of the can and is charged with Nitrogen before filling. When the can is opened, the pressure drop discharges Nitrogen to give the beer that unique head found only from Nitro taps. It’s the perfect can for a craft brewer looking to package an authentic, malt forward beer like a stout or porter.
