Default Dales Pale Ale........new river beer.

I have always heard good things about Dales, but I have never seen it anywhere I shop. Today I found it at my local HEB. For those of you in TX you know what that is. Anyway, I live in San Antonio and as you know we like to float down the river and drink beer(Cans Only). Usually I break out the fosters oil cans or shiner cans for the river, only becuase bottles aren't allowed and can selection is limited. But I am very surprised at this beer.....It's awesome.

Do they only can this stuff or can you get it in the bottle?

I saw at it at the one near me in the Houston area but heard it was not that good. But I might give it a try if you say it is good. Caldera has an IPA and a APA that got better reviews on beeradvocate.com, and it is in cans. You have to order it online but it is reasonably priced.http://www.liquidsolutions.biz/main/These guys carry it. I also heard that New Belgium was going to start canning some of there beers.

Ya I checked beer advocate and the bros didn't have much good to say, but these days good beer in cans is becoming harder to find. I would much rather drink this from a can than the other can alternatives available.

It is awesome. It's local for me and the only beer I buy. Everything is canned, no bottles. New Belgium seems to think they're on to something. Now you'll be able to get Fat Tire in a can.

I really dig DPA, Gordon, the Chubb and TenFiddy. Rock solid craft brews in a can. Sly Fox Pikeland Pils is another canned craft favorite of mine.

IIRC in the BA review, they mentioned a cardboardy off flavor in their sample of DPA..can't say I have ever had one that exhibited that.

Yeah, my local Bee Cave HEB started carrying it too. Along with Steamworks Amber Lager. Both are around 8 bucks for a six pack.

It's great pool beer too! No glass near the pool.

Tasty Brew in a can. Pack it in, Pack it out!

Don't listen to everything the Bro's say. I'd rely more on the BA's reviews than the Bro's>
last i checked this was one of the best beers in a can you could find

Oskar's Old Chub is the best Scottish Wee Heavy I have ever had.

So good, I packed it into the Canyon and quaffed it at Indian Gardens on the way out!
