For me never, unless I don't have a choice.
Maybe this sounds hipster-douchey of me but I only drink beers straight from the can (or bottle) when it's a cheap, crappy beer I don't really want to taste in the first place. Most of the beer I drink I pour in a glass whether I buy a can or bottle.
Yay if not posting. Nay if posting.
I do a lot especially if I'm outside. I love it.
I drank a couple Hopslams from the glass and then a couple straight from the can and could not honestly tell a difference. I think you're ok with certain styles, but I don't think I'd drink something such as a TenFidy straight from the can.
I have to pour it in a glass.
Depends on the beer and mood for me. I've poured PBR into a glass before and I have drank Sucaba straight from the bottle. The only person you have to please is yourself, so drink your beer how you want and ENJOY IT!
Can. Less hassle. Getting it straight from the "source." Get to burp more that way too.
IPAs from the can are bitter bombs, miss out on a lot of the flavors. Pale Ales are fine though.
If it's a beer I've had many many times, if I'm lazy, if the can is ice cold, then yea, I will slug in a can.
I don't think there's a wrong way to drink a beer. It's a matter of personal taste.
That said I go to the glass option unless unavailable.
Oh, f ya. Why not?
Everything has a time and place.
Depends... I won't pitch a fit for a glass, but it's a nicer experience. If i'm out and about, a cold can isn't punishment, it's just a cold can.
I've done it before and I'll do it again. It's not optimal, but as hard as it may be to believe, sometimes there are other things that take precedence over having the perfect beer .
If I'm at someone's house, they always just hand me a beer. Cool. But I always ask if they have a glass. I'm that guy.
...probably to take your mind off of how muddy and amateurish the beer actually looks.
It doesn't taste too bad though.
Generally, no, but, right no, on vacation, I have had several out of the can.
Never never never.
Either way although glassware is preferable.
Sometimes when you're out there catching trout by the waterside or peddling along a fine bicycle trail, bringing along appropriate glassware isn't really an option...
Beat me to it!
Seriously, though: always from a glass befitting the style.
Glass always. Just makes the experience more of a, well, experience.. I do drink Stone ipa out of the bottle though. Has a more crisp taste to me or something
Out of a glass.
Honestly, as blasphemous as it sounds, I don't even know if it helps that much. I like the appearance and presentation alot better with a glass, but in terms of better taste, its not record breaking.
What's ugly about hazy beer?
Yay. I love the concentrated hop smell and overall aroma you get out of a can that dissipates in a bigger opening drinking vessel such as a glass or horn.
All hail our squid lord Cthulhu that's what he would want
depends. usually in a glass if its a 16oz can
Only Heady Topper, albeit the only two times I had it. I only did it because I was strongly advised by both the can and the waitresses to not pour it in a glass. However, next time I'm in Vermont, I will resist peer pressure and try it in a glass.
Usually in a glass if at all possible. Straight from the can is a distant second, and I'll probably end up doing it some when it warms up (camping beer! never actually taken any beer with me when camping/hiking before since all the camping/hiking I've done was before I started drinking beer, but that'll probably change this spring or summer.)
Straight from the bottle, though, is an "only if there's no other option" situation for me... literally every bottled beer I've tried both ways (in glass + straight from bottle), whether cheapo AAL or craft beer or somewhere in between, tasted noticeably worse straight from the bottle. Not sure why, but cans just seem to work a little better for drinking directly out of.
Wrong no, but most are better from a glass. Out in the woods though, on a hike, I don't blame anyone from drinking straight from the can.
I almost always try to use a glass..every once in a while I'll do the HT straight from the can, but usually I pour that into a glass as well. I like to admire the look of the beer in a glass, while also being able to get a fulfilling smell of my beer.
I only pour into a glass if I want to rate it and see the color. Otherwise always from the can
I normally would use glass, but Ten Fidy out of the can or Swami's IPA, just as good.
I usually do glassware if it's my first taste of a given beer, but I'm not as picky on subsequent drinks of the same beer.
Heady Topper from the can, always.
No, but it is wrong to type/write the word "CAN" in anything but upper-case letters! Otherwise, you are diminishing their importance. The CANQuest (tm) has spoken!
It's wrong to not drink a beer in whichever way you want:
Just do it.
Last summer, I was lucky enough to get 8 cans of very fresh Heady. I poured the first into a tulip. For the second, I decided to heed the command of the can and drink directly from the can.
The flavors, particularly the hoppiness, were much more pronounced. I drank the remainder directly from the can.
Recently, I tried the same experiment with Nugget Nectar and also preferred the direct from the can flavor.
I never thought that I would drink top shelf beer from a can and actually enjoy it. But, I also cannot deny that there is something to the claim that direct from the can is better.
Glass almost always. Unless I'm doing something outside, shower beers are always from thr can/bottle. If I have several of the same beer I'll switch it up and compare glass and can.
