    Has anyone tried the new cans that Captain Lawrence released? Was just curious on first impressions.

    Where's it available other than the brewery? Beer Menus has it only at Good Beer in Manhattan, growlers only.

    I got a 4-pack at WF Chelsea. It wasn't cheap, $18 after tax, but it was worth it. To be completely honest, if I had drank it blind I would put it up against any of the NYC breweries.

    Just tried Powder Dreams (Citra) and I must say I'm impressed. I give Captain Lawrence a lot of credit for helping to pioneer craft beer in the area but have felt for a while now that their beers are a solid step or two behind the best that the larger area around them has to offer. But this one gives me hope... the brewery has always been a lot of fun to visit, but if they can more consistently offer beers at this level it would really be something else.
