    Oskar Blues posted this on FB today. I 100% agree that Caldera IPA should have been added, plus all and every Oskar blues brew. Fu-CAN movement I say. Cheers to beer in a can.

    I'd include Sante Fe Java Stout, Southern Star Buried Hatchet, Austin Beerworks Black Thunder, etc etc. Those are 15 great beers, but there are lots of other good ones in cans too.

    I have to agree, I was really glad to see uncommon brewers out of Santa cruz proper on that list. and obviously Dales, Deviant Dales gubina etc..

    Back in Black is pretty bad... replace it with Daisy Cutter.

    Shiiiiiiiiit, forgot about heady.
  16. These lists are like All-Star Games [pick any sport]. There's always somebody upset because someone is left out or someone they don't like is included.
  17. Relax. We do it all the time. Wait until there's a thread titled ``15 Most Overhyped Canned Beers''. Then you'll see a real shit-show.

  18. Oh, I'm relaxed and I know it's done all the time. That's the reason for my post. It's just another ho-hum subjective list.

    Exactly. This is just one writers list published on what happens to be a fairly popular online news site. No one can really complain about any of those beers being on the list because they all have a pretty damn good reputation. If you happen to disagree, get a job with HuffPost and make your own list.
  20. Oh, I get it now. You WANT to see a shit-show! :)

    Elevated IPA, Gold Medal at GABF... awesome beer.
  23. Just had for the 1st time and loved it so i will add 21st Amendment Hop Crisis to the list. So smooth for the abv.

  24. Moose Drool???!!! Take take that one out and add Half Acre's Daisy Cutter and Surly's Furious.

    Glad to see Barney Flats on it. Ten Fidy I expected to see.

    Should have seen Dales Pale Ale and Sante Fe's Imperial Java Stout on it.Haven't had many of what did make it but I'd take either of those over: Maui's Cococunut Porter, Ska's Modus Hoperandi, New Belgium's Shift (and Avery's White Rascal but I don't care for that style).

    Heady Topper! I enjoyed one this weekend!
  27. red racer ipa!!!
  28. Don't fully agree but pretty damn close to what I would choose!
  29. Ten Fidy is somewhere in the top two or three.
  30. Namely Furious, but Surly overall rocks, absolutely agree! I thought it was interesting that Heady is displayed twice but at least it wasn't counted twice.
  31. The ones I was thinking of you all beat me to it. I'm glad to see Sun King on that list, was introduced to that one over the summer while spending a few days with the family back home in Indiana; I thought it was pretty awesome to sit in the stands watching the Indianapolis Indians and enjoying Some Sun King.

    Good list, but it is missing Surly Abrasive and Furious.
  35. Heady Topper, Deviant Dales, Hop Crisis...can't go wrong with any of these!

    Seriously? No NEBCo love?

    Gandhi-Bot is surely missing from the list and I'd have to argue that either Sea Hag or 668 The Neighbor of the Beast belongs on that list to..maybe even both.

    Back in Black was ok, but if they want to stick with 21st Amendment then Hop Crisis was much better. Resin I've had and I agree, it's might tasty along with Maui Brewing's CoCoNut Porter (thanks turfy!).
