    This will be great in cans, I think I would prefer it that way, will definitely be getting some of this the second I see it.

    It was 10.99 a sixer when I found it. A 22.00 twelve pack? Gee, can't wait.
    I did enjoy it, but I won't ever buy it again.

    Founders now doing distribution to Australia. A slight mix up with the labels happened and the beers are just getting into the market. Apparently All day IPA is not getting a lot of love as thought of as old and stale so far. Bummer

    They should call it weak sauce IPA.

    MRSP of $17.99 according to the crew in the replies. I'm down at that price; it's about fifty cent cheaper per unit than what I pay for bottles around here.

    Hopefully it is a lot fresher than the bottles I see around my neck of the woods. If so, I'm all over this as a staple in my fridge.

    If msrp is $18 it will be $20 in my area, if I want a 12 pack of pale ale in cans I'll go with SNPA for $14.

    Agree 100% with that! Double Trouble in cans would be awesome. And why not tallboys!

    And we had to give up FBS in 6-packs because of this? Just saw a store-made "summer pack" that included 2 Leinies, All-day IPA, and 3 other "summer" brews that turned my stomach. Not that All-day turns my stomach, but who came up with this concept? I showed it to the beer guy who was working there and he had a good laugh--it was one of the other guys who put it together...

    Around here, SNPA is down to $13. You can get Widmer Bros for $14.

    You must have missed the whole flap after Founders announced that Breakfast Stout will come in 6-packs (with a slight reduction in MSRP per bottle) only to pull that back a month later because, they said, they can't do that after making All-day a year-round beer. Now that they announced cans, that last statement is much more clear. Still, perhaps they should change the name to Flounders. Not a good PR move, for sure, even if top-quality stouts are a smaller fraction of the market than middling IPAs.

    PS: I've been puzzling over the "founder26" handle...

    2013 = The year to hate on Founders.

    I honestly could care less if FBS is in 4packs or 6packs, all the same to me and nothing to get in a flap about.

    Drinking this right now. It's delicious and fresh. It's great from the can or poured into a glass.

    I did a bottle / can side by side too. bottle is dated 7/4. no date on the can that I can see. I vote can is better and so did my brother, but maybe we just like new stuff or the can is fresher.

    I'll be drinking All Day..... all day?!?

    I know I'm from the home town, but I found a shop around here selling 12pks for 15.99! I would have bought it, but I was already stocked up with the cans. I have a feeling these will now see continual stock in my fridge.

    That's what I thought after purchasing this when it first came out. Then I was ambitious enough to pick it up last week. It's a great IPA, very vibrant and full flavored for the ABV.

    Will definitely grab some cans!

    That's when I just buy 2 for packs, tell the fiance I only bought 6 and enjoy the extra 2 while she's at work.

    Great news! Though, I still say this (awesome) beer is an apa.

    Founders is easily one of my top 5 favorite breweries. I cannot wait until I can routinely buy 15k cans of All Day
