    My best in a can- HT/Abrasive/Double Daisy Cutter/ Furious/Daisy Cutter/Caldera/Modus Hoperandi. I have some Cigar City stuff in bound, I haven't had them yet.

    Just had my first Jai Alai last night...now re-reading that list, how is Jai Alai not included? Serious omission.

    Correct. I know in Wisconsin (and probably most places) anywhere NEAR water you are not allowed glass at all so cans are a must. Alwyas stocking up on Daisy Cutter before a Kayak excursion on the Wisco!

    I'll toss Revolution's Anti-Hero to the mix here since Oskar Blues and Surly have already been mentioned.

    That list lost all credibility for me when I saw Coffee Bender was chosen over basically ANY OTHER SURLY BEER.

    I didn't know about these bottle laws on water until last summer when going out on the Mississippi. Something about the DNR can stop you and fine you for missing bottle caps even? Luckily, I was able to find some Point Cascade Pale Ale in cans before heading out! Craft in cans is awesome for boating, golfing, camping.

    Had a bunch of Cigar City stuff in FL over the holidays. All fantastic from a can. Preferable to the bottle.

    Heady
    Gubna
    Jai Alai
    Ten Fidy
    Modus
    Anti-Hero
    Resin
    Coconut Porter
    Ellie's Brown
    Vinifera Stout

    With 12 Abrasive on the way, one of these will undoubtedly get pushed out.

    When I think about Resin, I throw up in my mouth a little.

    Of those on the list I have tried, I would eliminate Back in Black and Shift. Add a couple of Surly's and the Outlaw IPA from Two Brothers.

    Ten fidy, Youngs double chocolate ( had in the bottle for the first time ever the other day, NEVER AGAIN!), caldera ipa. Sadly this concludes canned beers i've had and liked. I cant wait to try more!

    Sixpoint Resin, West Sixth IPA, Modus Hoperandi, never had Heady Topper, but the way people talk about it its Gods gift to beer.

    It wasn't available in cans when the list was published so it wasn't an omission. I would add Jai Alai to my list in the 3 spot. Right below Ten Fiddy and right above Daisy Cutter. It's the best part about a visit to Florida IMO.

    I don't drink too many canned goods but Ten Fidy would be at the top of my list.

    I know its currently on hiatus, but 21st Ammendment's Monk's Blood deserves a shout out. My personal favorite beers to ever come out of cans are of course heady over and over again, and ten fidy

    Ive had a bunch of really freakin good beers in cans -like you name it... Anyway, the other day a friend of mine was talking about how good Stella is in a can. I was skeptical, but then I bought a ten pack and DAMN! I like bottled Stella alright, but out of a can, for a session/after work/mid week beer, DAMN GOOD! I dont usually buy the same beer twice in a row, but Im going back for seconds.

    I think the trend going forward should be more and MORE canned goodness
