Brouwerij Huyghe Releases 500ml Cans of Delirium Nocturnum

Brouwerij Huyghe in Melle, Belgium has announced the release of 500-mL cans of Delirium Nocturnum in the U.S. Full details from the brewery are below.


Frederick Maryland - Better Beverage Leaders, Inc. of Frederick, MD, announces that Brouwerij Huyghe’s Belgian Strong Dark Ale, Delirium Nocturnum, will be packaged in cans for the first time. BBL, Inc. will be importing the beer into the United States with a projected landing date of September 2020. It will be made available to their distribution partners across the United States.

The popularity of cans in the US Market has been steadily growing over the past several years. In 2019, Brouwerij Huyghe’s Delirium Red made its debut in 500ml Can Four Packs, which increased its U.S. sales to new heights while boosting draft and bottle sales as-well. The world-renowned Delirium Tremens was the first to appear in cans several years ago.

“We’re very excited to have the opportunity to bring a long-standing brand like Nocturnum to market in a new format,” said BBL, Inc. CEO Laura Day. “We’ve seen a significant increase in distribution and brand recognition in the past with Tremens and Red when the 500ml can format was made available. Nocturnum arriving in late Summer leading into its most popular time of year is something we feel lucky to offer. Considering the current state of beer production during the era of Covid-19, we are fortunate to represent Brouwerij Huyghe as they continue to create new ways for beer-lovers to access their world-class brews.”
