    Those of you that have Heady Topper readily available, do you actually drink it from the can or from your favorite glass?

    I have had in and poured in glass.

    99% from the can just like John Kimmich wants. It is delicious either way but unless you intent to chug it, the can keeps it fresh and fragrant for longer.

    Can every time but the first time, I had half can and half glass then. I also drink Focal from the can. In reality I drink most beers from the can/bottle they come in.

    Enjoy

    This is a cleverly disguised appreciation thread.

    When I drink Heady or Focal Banger I drink the first one out of the can, oooooohhh $#!& KC just tied it up. Cheers.

    I've done numerous side-by-sides, and it's better from the can, IMHO.

    Glass, 100% of the time, from the finest Spiegelau glassware I own.

    From the can, every time.

    That said, at the risk of sounding spoiled, I can't go into a grocery store, gas station, etc w/o being smothered by Heady. VT's distribution practices are very protective and, consequently, can't get diverse out-of-state crafty beer (aside from very targeted upper NE beers). Not complaining but it's the landscape 'round these parts.

    I'd be drowning in Brown Water if i was there. Beer would be the LAST thing on my mind.

    I tried both ways. What I found works best is poking a hole in the bottom of the can, placing my mouth over the hole, then cracking the top of the can open, using the pull-tab, to generate an explosive mouthfeel.

    I've done glass v can side-by-sides more than once with both Heady and Focal Banger.

    I agree with the brewer that drinking from the can is better. Certainly, it could be the power of suggestion, but the citrus notes seem much bolder and brighter to me.
