Honestly haven't heard of most of those brews, let alone in a can.

That said, Blue Moon and Pyramid are meh, and Miller tastes like it's half a good beer.

The ones in my fridge have quotes from "So I Married an Axe Murderer" printed on the lip.  "It's like Sputnik" and "A Virtual Planetoid"

Also, it's only green, black, white and silver, no orange or yellow.  That one must be an older can or something.

Like all things, there are exceptions.  I'll agree that there is a lot of shiat beer in cans.  However, there are some good ones. This list a pretty good place to start if you want to challenge your preconceptions.

the can is not the issue. cans are better than glass bottles for keeping the beer.

but, i would have put this one the list, even though it's not supposed to be drunk from the can and it's not very exotic:

2013-01-25 03:40:22 PM
Not a bad list excepting the inclusions of Blue Moon and High Life. Needs more examples from Surly and Oskar Blues. Overall, the list certainly is not The Best canned beers but a good cross section of brewers who can good beer.

First, in the 1990s, came the craft beer revolution. Then, for some reason, there was a second craft beer revolution.

A: I don't understand why they consider it a "revolution".

B: I never saw a second "revolution", just that more craft beers went national. I don't think these guys actually paid any attention to beer of craft brews...

I also like how they say "brewers took notice" that cans were light tight. They've known this all along, you morons.

High Life is not so bad when it's a hot day, you want something light(Not 'Lite'), and all of the specialty beers are crap like Killian's Red. Also good when you are in a mood to hit the dive bars. It's got a place in my personal list. Way below most things, but above crap like Coors Light..

Your wife makes great pancakes: Heady Topper fark yeah!


To all the fans of Heady Topper: if you think that one is good, you need to try to get a hold of Marshall Wharf's "Can't Dog" or the seasonal "Wet Dog." Both imperial IPAs, the latter of the two is wet hopped instead of dry hopped. I think they are both substantially better than Heady Topper. That's just my own opinion, YMMV.

Even more of an opinion, I think my own DIPA is better than both, but I realize that's pure bias right there. :)

Lightweight drinkers? You realize that a normal strength craft beer is usually in the 5-6.5% range, compared to lite beers which typically ring in between 4-4.5% ? Even if you drink Bud heavy, it's 5%. That's about as weak as craft beers are made.

The first beer on this list is over 10% abv. Also, pale ale, IPA, stout, and some of the other styles on this list are hundreds of years old, whereas "American Light" had to be added into the style categories just a few decades ago.

In conclusion, enjoy your miller lite, pansy.

Your first clue should have been the inclusion of watermelon.

It is suitable for wine or for inoculating with everclear or vodka, but never beer.

NuttierThanEver: That's because even good beer tastes like shiat when it's in cans.


Generally, not really. Cans keep beer fresher than bottles because "skunking" only occurs due to UV light. Cans block 100% of all light unlike bottles. Is it generally an issue? No, but with the heavily hopped beers people produce today it makes a difference because skunking is caused by light reacting with hop isohumulones.

I wrote the article and I want to defend myself on some points here:

1) The "Second" Craft Beer Revolution is reasonably well accepted dogma in the craft beer world. Ready more about it here: http://allaboutbeer.com/full-pints/2013/01/the-second-craft-beer-revol ution-will-it-stick-this-time/

2) I've been drinking craft beer for 15 years and have been writing about it professionally for 5. I spend a lot of time paying attention to beer. And though I didn't drink through all of the 90s (I was in my teens for most of it), I drank through as much of them as I could and did my research beyond that.

3) Yes, maybe "brewers taking notice" was the wrong phrasing, but the truth is brewers have finally begun speaking publicly about their love of cans as opposed to adhering to the standard idea that good beers come in bottles.

Thanks for all your criticism though, as right or wrong as they may be. Say what you want about the blog, but I tried to make my article as valid as possible and I am certainly not a "moron." Cheers.

Heady Topper from VT was a huuuge deal when it landed in very small quantities in NYC. Store near me was only selling 1 can per customer, because they couldn't deal with the demand but still wanted to make sure everyone was able to get at least 1.

Then I just had my brother in law bring down a couple of 4 packs from VT. So I was havin a laugh.

Good stuff, been meaning to try the cans. Great for the Great Outdoors... I have a can of their (new to me) one--Hoptimum, sitting in the fridge calling out to me.As well as about 6 bombers of Arrogant Bastard that I had someone pick up on a road trip(Can't get that in Utah). I'm really falling behind on my drinking.

Mikey1969: Bruxellensis: Mikey1969: NuttierThanEver: That's because even good beer tastes like shiat when it's in cans.

Draft>>>botttle>>>>>>>>skunk piss>>>>>>used urinal cake >>>>>> beer in cans

You do realize that the kegs and cans are both made of aluminum, right? This isn't the canned beer you drank in high school...

Kegs are made of stainless steel.

I've used aluminum before, far lighter than if they were steel.


When, in the 1940's?

long long ago, in the far away times, when the distribution companies that were worth a damn wouldn't touch craft brands because they were closly affiliated with the national brands and you had to figure out how to get your beer to market, the Brewery I work for figured out how to open up it's own distribution company in order to sell the beer..

they were a craft and import distributor and were one of the first companies on the east coast to carry stuff from oscar blues, victory, etc.

to get to the point.. I remember when the Oscar Blues Ten fiddy first came to the market.. very small batch, we got no more thatn 30 cases on the first shipment. .The cans were hand labeled. A generic white can with a self adhesive paper label wrapped around the can.
interesting times.. I should've saved a couple for historical reference.


when I started out in the beer mines, I was considered the Packaging floor specialist I.e. chief bottle washer, and filler. All the glass pack was in 22's and done by hand on a four spout hand operated champagne filler. took an hour to drain a keg down into six odd cases of bottles, three shifts a day doing that. 6 days a week to get it done.


hell... when Oskar Blues started out.. thier canning operation was a by hand system... a six pack at a time. then manually sealed the can.

times, they have a changed..


cans area ideal for any beer.. very little head space for O2 absorption. no chance for light skunking. the can themselves are very light, so when it comes to shipping and handling, the weight of the cans is negligible. full surface for label artwork.

cans don't shatter so they are welcome in various out door pursuit where bottles are not welcome.

and of course.. the folks that complain about canned beer having the canned taste? pour the shiat in a glass and stop lipping up the can!

the only problem with most of those is they don't readily fit in the vintage coin op coke machine ;) both boddington, and old speckled hen put guiness to shame IMHO.

in fact.. I only ever get a Guinness if absolutely nothing else is available. not that I don't like Guinness, but I feel it is a pale and insipid version of the style and its popularity is only because of years and years of marketing and decades of it being the only thing available of its sort on the american market.

otherwise, it aint bad, just... there is better out there.

slidillon's beer rules:

No matter what container the beer comes in, pour it into a glass and drink it at the appropriate temperature. It WILL taste better this way and is worth the hassle of a dirty glass.

Do not buy beer in clear or even green bottles. Light exposure will make them skunky no matter how good they tasted when bottled.

Drink what you like!

virtualbeggar: Mikey1969: B: I never saw a second "revolution", just that more craft beers went national. I don't think these guys actually paid any attention to beer of craft brews...

I also like how they say "brewers took notice" that cans were light tight. They've known this all along, you morons.

/As much as I like stories about beer, your blog sucks. Next time pick someone who could drink in the 90's to do a story about drinking trends from the 90's to the present day.

I wrote the article and I want to defend myself on some points here:

1) The "Second" Craft Beer Revolution is reasonably well accepted dogma in the craft beer world. Ready more about it here: http://allaboutbeer.com/full-pints/2013/01/the-second-craft-beer-revol ution-will-it-stick-this-time/

2) I've been drinking craft beer for 15 years and have been writing about it professionally for 5. I spend a lot of time paying attention to beer. And though I didn't drink through all of the 90s (I was in my teens for most of it), I drank through as much of them as I could and did my research beyond that.

3) Yes, maybe "brewers taking notice" was the wrong phrasing, but the truth is brewers have finally begun speaking publicly about their love of cans as opposed to adhering to the standard idea that good beers come in bottles.

Thanks for all your criticism though, as right or wrong as they may be. Say what you want about the blog, but I tried to make my article as valid as possible and I am certainly not a "moron." Cheers.


I still noticed no difference between a "first" and a "second". I also wouldn't call them revolutions, but what the hell...

I saw some micros close down. In Phx, they got slashed by about 80%, but all I've seen craft beers do is continue to grow, rather steadily. Maybe I never saw a first and second because as a craft beer enthusiast, I always bought the good stuff from the liquor stores, or the brewery itself. I never saw it die off.

The link isn't working, but I'll take your word for it that they think there is a second revolution.

I believe the tech also improved enough that the beer would taste better in the cans then previously without having to fall back on the old Keystone "specially lined can" gimmick, another reason why they started being able to do cans. I agree that cans have a bad rap, just look at this thread.

And lastly, I'll say sorry about the 'moron' thing, I just got frustrated by hearing what seemed incomplete or wrong to me. Too many examples on the internet of crap now, I'm getting jaded at the smallest things. I didn't used to be so cynical, maybe it's because I don't drink enough beer anymore.

See if THIS link works, but the gist of the two "revolutions" was that a lot of the "microbreweries" that were the trend in the late '80s and early '90s shut down in the mid-'90s when the "microbrewery bubble" burst. During that period, craft beer growth declined before once again picking up in the early 2000s and leading us to where we are today. Craft beer never really "died off," it just hit a bump in the road. Kinda like the "tech bubble."

In the end, it really doesn't matter. What matters is drinking beer. And being able to have a hobby that allows you to intoxicate yourself.

Lol @ the asshats saying canned beer tastes worse. Cans are technically superior because a) there is no light penetration and b) they are less likely to be sealed improperly, which can lead to infection/flatness.

/no, you can't tell the difference between one brand that is both canned and bottled, if both serving types are given in a blind taste test.

That link works. Thanks.

I seriously never saw the craft decline along with the micro bubble(I was a part of that one, the place I worked went under...), but maybe it was because I was on my own brewing kick, and on a jag where I was drinking Tecate with lime for awhile when it wasn't one of my own. Not sure why, but it's good beer that lands in the 'cheap' category, not the best, but before these were available in cans, it was my favorite choice for stuff like hitting the river... But yeah, I ony saw the micro part of it. The nice part was when I moved to Salt Lake I found a rather thriving microbrew scene, ironically enough.

Anyway, enjoy the beer, I'll keep an eye out for your blog in the future.

Good article, thanks... It seems to confuse microbrewing with craft brewing, though. They are two distinct areas, since micro becomes craft, becomes mass market after certain levels of sales. Still an interesting article. If anything would unseat the big corps making carbonated piss, I would be happy. Just as long as Red Hook doesn't fall with Anheuser Busch... That one is a very odd arrangement.

Right now I'm drinking an IPA I've never had before - it's called "Hop Stoopid", and it's what it says.
They decided that rather than put the grotesque amount of hops they wanted in it, and have the bottom of the kettle clog up with wort and turn the ale skunky, they would borrow a trick from the mass-piss-water brewers - they used hops extract. Good hop extract, that they made, is the drift I get,
At any rate, it's kind of weird. It's 8.0%, but you can't taste the alcohol, or, indeed anything but hops. And though there's not a trace of malty-ness, It's not really bitter - it has an oddly herbal, medicinal flavor.
I'm not sure how much I like it, but I think it would be good with heavy, greasy food - and anyway, the more of it I consume, the less it seems to matter.

You are old and misspent your youth and, as evidenced by forgetting "Mr. Brew", have killed too many brain cells.

jso2897: Right now I'm drinking an IPA I've never had before - it's called "Hop Stoopid", and it's what it says.
They decided that rather than put the grotesque amount of hops they wanted in it, and have the bottom of the kettle clog up with wort and turn the ale skunky, they would borrow a trick from the mass-piss-water brewers - they used hops extract. Good hop extract, that they made, is the drift I get,
At any rate, it's kind of weird. It's 8.0%, but you can't taste the alcohol, or, indeed anything but hops. And though there's not a trace of malty-ness, It's not really bitter - it has an oddly herbal, medicinal flavor.
I'm not sure how much I like it, but I think it would be good with heavy, greasy food - and anyway, the more of it I consume, the less it seems to matter.


I've had that before not too bad.

My brother brought this to Thanksgiving. Pretty good stuff

AgentBang: Heady Topper from VT was a huuuge deal when it landed in very small quantities in NYC. Store near me was only selling 1 can per customer, because they couldn't deal with the demand but still wanted to make sure everyone was able to get at least 1.

Then I just had my brother in law bring down a couple of 4 packs from VT. So I was havin a laugh.


It's so Damn good. Had it at the farm house in Burlington back in October.

Glad to see Gandhi bot made the list. I live about 10 mins from nebco. What a great little brewery that's becomig less of a local secret.

This is what I think of when I hear Surly, are the bikes and beer related in any way?

meat0918: Wellon Dowd: Only once have I not only failed to finish the beer I was drinking but poured the rest of the six-pack down the drain.

Your first clue should have been the inclusion of watermelon.

It is suitable for wine or for inoculating with everclear or vodka, but never beer.

And I like some of the beers with fruit, and am willing to try just about any beer. For instance, I wonder if a blackberry stout would be any good?


I made a blueberry porter a while back.  Great breakfast beer!

At one of the local beer stores here, they have a MOUNTAIN of sixers of those they're trying to unload at $3.99 a piece. Its been months. They don't go anywhere.

NathanAllen: Meh, I'd have went with Anderson Valley's Solstice Cream Beer.

Also, no love for Two Brother's Outlaw IPA? Even the links between cans are recycled, and much hoppier than Resistance.

Reality is canned beer is more stable since no light through the material. It helps with Craft Beers which can have distribution delays, be small consumption, etc.


The Solstice is ridiculously tasty

Surprised the hell out of me to see this.


Totally. This is all I drink these days. Can is far better than bottle.

As far as I know they are totally unrelated, but both are awesome!

Lsherm: If you're going to drink beer out of a can, you may as well drink this:

You know how I know you've never had anything from Oskar Blues?

/ God DAMN I wish they shipped to Missouri.

Just dropped in to say the Dry Dock Brewery started canning this year... February 2nd they have a launch party at the brew hut in Aurora, CO

It's kind of a big deal.

/ also Bluegrass Jam every Sunday noon

another advantage of aluminum cans is that they chill faster than glass bottles.

Shoutout for Westbrook IPA and White Thai. Think it's still restricted to the southeast, SC and I think they just cracked the GA market.
