STAMFORD - A brewery celebrated a canning milestone in Stamford today.

Half Full Brewery, located on Homestead Avenue, filled its first 18,000 cans of beer.

Previously, the beers were only available on tap in their tasting room and at local restaurants.

The company says that local liquor stores will start receiving the cans Thursday.

One of the reasons Half Full chose cans is because glass bottles can't be taken into many local parks and beaches.
