What do u think? Right now im thinking Surly Bender, what do u think?
Single beer? HT. Best canning brewery? Oskar Blues.
I liked a Colorado brew, Belgian Style Pale Ale from Upslope Brewing Company but I would usually think of Oskar Blues -- Old Chub and Ten Fidy.
Take the word canned out of your question and you just might get the same answer.
Might go to 50 for me.
Couldn't agree more on the Heady. But being in Vermont right now, I'm biased.
Moat brewing is doing some cool stuff with tall boys in NH. And Modus Hoperandi was my first favorite can. But HT is just too good to debate.
Heady for sure tops, but then very close second is Abrasive, then lets be honest modus is a good wide distro beer
Ten Fidy is the best I've had. I've heard a lot about this Heady Topper. Haven't tried it, but I'm going to assume that it's all just hype. If I don't assume that, I'll just feel sad.
Haven't tried Heady yet, so my answer is Abrasive.
Elevated IPA, from La Cumbre.
probably heady topper. NEBCO 668 is great. obviously surly makes some great ones. (shrug) so many great canned beers nowadays.
Yeah, HT is really sooo good. I gotta say though, I'm not willing to solidify a favorite simply because so many breweries are starting to can that I can't definitively say what will be my favorite.
If the question was which brewery is the best canned brewery, OB would win it for me. Surly might win if I were in the distro, but alas this is not my life.
yes and yes.
Surprised you didn't mention the great Gandhi-Bot
After all,it's an ideal aid for self purification and the seeking of truth and love......
Favorite at the moment: Maui Brewing/Jolly Pumpkin Sobrehumano Palena 'Ole.
It's the nectar of the gods.
Only had a sip/sample of Heady.
Gandhi Bot is awesome.
Narragansett Summer Ale is tasty too.
The Moat is my local brewpub and I love that they've added the 24oz cans. Unfortunately, the two currently being canned are my least favorite of their regular lineup. Neither of them are bad beers but I much prefer their pilsner and stout.
Obviously Heady is hard to beat for the title of best canned craft. Oskar Blues gets my vote for best overall canned line-up.
Abrasive. Heady is a close second, but it's a lot easier to trade for the former than the latter.
Heady god dam Topper. But Gandhi Bot is awesome too.
Heady,Gandhi,Furious are my top 3
Big Swell IPA & Torpedo
wish we had Heady Topper in CA!
My favorite milk stout comes from a can.. Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat
I haven't had many but of what I've had I'd say:
Heady Topper. DRINK FROM THE CAN!!!!!! Torpedo in the can is #2. Ive never had Surly though.
Haven't had many but Gubna from Oskar Blues is pretty good.
I don't get Surly or the Alchemist anywhere that I can find, but I did enjoy Oskar Blues - Ten Fidy and Old Chub spring to mind.
Dales Pale Ale
Probably Heady, but Abrasive, Torpedo and Gandhi Bot are right there too.
Since Heady, Torpedo, and Ten Fidy have been said x100, I'll throw out Southern Star Buried Hatchet. No hype and no -bals, but it's everything a stout should be.
I honestly have not had a single beer mentioned so far in this thread so I can't compare or comment about any of them, but the best I've had so far is Half Acre's Daisy Cutter.
Also, Arcadia just released their Sky High Rye in cans, and it's a good one too.
Going along with the Texas breweries...Karback Weise Versa (awesome wit/hefe hybrid), Austin Beer Works Peal Snap and Fire Eagle (both are among my favorites for the styles), Southern Star Pine Belt, Real Ale Firemans 4 and soon to be Full Moon.
Heady and Abrasive, in no particular order. Ten Fidy would be in the conversation.
Fort George's Oatmeal Pale Ale.
