Default Sierra Nevada Cans

They're here! Tastes exactly the same out of a glass. I think i might have to shotgun one.

I just heard beer snobs around the world gasp at the same time with that statement

Bonus for the term "Can Conditioned"!

Ha ha ha. Yeah but it had to be done. Sometimes it's good to take off the snob hat and just drink a damn beer. With a knife.

No reason to slam a good beer,may as well be a ................Lots of versitilty in a can,back in the day we'd make pipes out of them.
I love SN labels,its classic and looks great on a can.How much are those by the way? I dont know,maybe this will preserve a hop taste you dont get in the bottle.Ive had some pretty fresh tasting craft can beers to notice some.

They're the same price as bottles. 14.99 here. Probably less in Chico. Guess that makes me more of a glutten for shotgunning. It was, however, absolutely delicious, much more pleasant than my fading memories of drinking warm piss beer like that.

I love that there is more and more decent beer being put into cans. Easier to stuff in the pack for craggin' and backpacking trips.

I just saw those at Whole Foods this past weekend. Thought about going for it, but the price per ounce ended up being exactly the same as just getting bottles. Plus I get to reuse the bottles. I'd definitely get 'em if it was any cheaper.
