The base unscrews and nests in the top. $6 from REI.

Nice. I just drank the first one out of the can. This is going to make a great beer to take out to the lake, where no glass is allowed. I think this beer will make the perfect post dive Beverage.

BTW...These are some of the best beers you'll ever have out of a can.

These beers, like most craft beers should not be drank from the can. Any metallic taste you will perceive from drinking one of these will be because you're putting your pils on aluminum. The liner in cans these days is pretty solid and the beer will stay in good condition in there, but it is like any other beer. I don't drink out of bottles and I wouldn't drink this stuff out of cans.

Just had this beer for the first time at a local bar. $3.50 for a can, but it was worth it. I poured it into a glass, so it didnt really matter. This is definately a beer I would buy again. On the hoppy side for a pale ale, but I like that!

Dale's is some really good stuff.

If you want other good canned beers, Maui Brewing Co. uses them. Their Big Swell IPA is excellent, and the Coconut Porter is pretty damn good as well.

The coconut porter is one of the best beers I've ever had. I could drink that every day.

Big fan o'the cans. My parents have a pool, so in the summer time I live off Sly Fox cans. Their Phoenix Pale Ale, Royal Weiss, and Pikeland Pils rock hard. I have some Dale's cans in the fridge right now. too. Oh, and in the summer, I bottle my watermelon wheat homebrew in these:



Don't worry - they're not Iron City, nor have they ever contained Iron City (only pic I could find with the right shape), but I got a case of plain silver ones free from the brewery (sent to them as product samples). You need a bench capper though for the stubby neck, but otherwise they're awesome!

You guys talked me into it....with the Dales Pale Ale.....$9 6 pack and I can't even keep the bottles.....The beer is Very similar to the version of Fat Tire that they serve in Colorado Chili's restaurants. (Completely different from the bottled version)

so I have to say...i's good...but not that good.

I hate to say it, but everyone from joe shmo to the beer critics at the New York Times disagree with you. It is widely regarded as one of the best Am. Pale Ales out there...
