Best Canned Beer

In the last year, a ton of great beers have started appearing in cans. FTIAC (Fat Tire in a Can) is pure delicious, and superior to it's bottled cousin, in my humble opinion. Ska's Modus Hoperandi is probably my favorite right now, but ohh the hangover! Needless to say, Dale's Pale was a pioneer and remains a near the top of the pack. Good old PBR remains in the top 10 for it's legendary value.

Discuss.

1. Simply the best in a can: Flat Tire
2. Second best: Ska ESB
3. Really hot weather/volume consumption: Tecate
4. "Hey buddy can you spare a brew" desperation/DTs: PBR

Ska True Blonde or New Belgium Sunshine Wheat, True Blonde is tough to find in cans therefore Sunshine usually wins at my house.

how about best river temp beer in a can? For that I've gotta go with New Castle.

Worst warm beer in a can? Moosehead, hands down.

Dan,

Disappointed to see you've changed from the rainbow kayaker avatar.

Having gotten to the point in life where quality wins out over quantity, I'm partial to Murphy's Irish Stout, Wexford Ale, and some of the other higher end & imported brews. Guinness works if I can't get the Murphy's. Labatts and Modelo are good "utility" beers. The Upslope's a recent market entry and is a really good canned beer also.

As for warm beers, I prefer mine at least "celler temperature" for stouts and ales and ice cold for lagers, but will toss out a friend's maxim for consideration:

"The warmest beer I ever had was cold enough for me."

What? Don't like the boognish? Never fear, boofing rainbow will return for runoff 2010. and warm beer has always tasted better than my least favorite beverage: out of beer.

Upslope Brewery

These guys just opened shop and only distribute in cans:

Upslope Brewing Company

Now, I have yet to try it myself, but the word on the street is that they can a very good IPA. I imagine distribution to the farther reaches of the state is still in progress.

Damn, I just made myself thirsty. I might have to get off my ass and drive there for a tasting.

As for my on-river tastes, I like Tecate for all-day rowing and camp games in the sun, but I'll keep a stash of slow-drinking beers like Guinness, Boddington's or Dale's for the campfire.
