    Because some places you can take cans where glassware isn't allowed.

    I haven't had a lot of cans, but by favorites are Ten Fidy and CoCoNut Porter.

    Lots of mentions of Sixpoint here. It's making me excited for my approaching delivery from Halftime Beverage.

    They didn't have any 3Bean, but I was able to grab a Resin, a Bengali Tiger and a Righteous Ale (along with several 21st Amendment brews that I have been trying to get my hands on for months).

    I will likely be updating my thoughts on the best canned craft beer after a lengthy tasting session. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

    If you want to hear something new, Foolproof. They are new in RI. They have an American Golden Ale, an IPA, and a Porter. Cans only!

    I'm surprised everyone says Heady Topper. It's good but not as good as Abrasive. Abrasive is the best IIPA in the country - no contest.

    Heady....there is no conversation to be had on this subject. The answer...the only answer...is Heady :D

    And I mentioned that consideration, knowing that it isn't the reason why the "can" topic is being discussed. The general question (and thread) is pretty useless for someone's specific "no-bottle" situations. i.e. No one's flying to Vermont to buy Heady Topper to take to the beach in S. Carolina. And Ten Fidy might not be the best suggestion either.

    You can never go wrong with Heady. Another IPA I enjoyed was 21st Brew Free or Die Hard, surprised me. Love most things Oscar Blues puts out as well

    Yeah, because your comment is completely consistent with its BA score. Do some research.

    RamoneTavares Initiate (0) Jan 15, 2013 Virginia

    It's BA score is 90............and that's abt 10 points too high. I think reg dale's is better than deviant. All I was saying is that id rather have someone spit heady in my mouth than drink either oskar blues........

    All of the Surly year round beers are canned and very solid beers.

    Even as a Minnesota resident I have to say Heady Topper is #1. Surly, I hope we can still be friends...

    Im a minnesota resident as well and i have to agree that heady is just awesome. all the surly stuff is great, but heady is just that far ahead. jai alai that i got in recent trades was tasty as well as ghadi bot. wish i had better access to those brews

    I did- and for me, it wasn' t even close! I did it twice - with 2 different batches of HT. Heaven forbid if someone doesn't agree with your opinion. Have another Heady (still an excelent choice) and relax a little instead of throwing names around. Have a nice day....

    Knucklenuts is a term of endearment. :)
