    I've always been a bottle fan and never gave much thought about my favorite canned brew....until now. What's your favorite?

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that most people will say Heady Topper.

    Six point resin is one of my favorite offerings, but I've never tried heady topper.

    Ten Fidy is definitely the best canned beer I've had that wasn't an IPA. Lots of good ipas being canned these days, most of which have been mentioned here.

    My favorite source for cans goes to Brewery Vivant, both their North French and Big Red Coq. Essential for camping trips.

    Sixpoint and their mad Scientists are laughable.

    Anything carton is miles above anything else canned. Finally lucky to say I'm from nj and can easily pick their stuff up.

    I haven't had a lot of beers in cans as I prefer bottles but I would go with either:

    Ten Fidy
    or
    Bells Two Hearted
