Default Hey Snobs, Beer From Cans is AMAZING!

So tonight I went to a beer sampling class. It was extremely well organized and executed so I tip my glass to Total Wine!

One of the most valuable thing I learned there was that beer from a can can be unbelievably good.

If you don't believe me go pick up a can of Dale's Ten-Fidy Stout, Dale's Pale Ale, or Dale's Scotch Ale.

I am sure there are more great beers in a can but Total Wine really helped me shed my snobbish preconceptions of canned beer.

I think everyone understand the can is the ideal storage container, unfortunately more micro brews aren't available in can due to packaging costs. Kind of like how the dreaded wine box is a far superior package for the product than the bottle, but you have to get over the stigma of boxed wine.

21st Amendment IPA.

I had some Dales years ago and wouldn't pay to try it again.

Southern Star Brewing in Conroe Texas does all their brew in a can. Their Bombshell Blonde is one of my favorite (non-homebrew) summer-time brews. And their Buried Hatchet Stout is awesome.

Hop on the CO can bandwagon! Ska, Steamworks, Upslope, Avery, Oscar Blues, Breckenridge, etc

Surly is scary good. I only worry about the availability of bottles for homebrewers...

What supposedly makes a can better (a more ideal storage container) than a bottle for beer, and a bag in box better than a bottle for wine?

The can completely blocks all UV rays that can skunk the hops, for one (same reason brown bottles are better than green). Sure there are other reasons, but that's one.
