Default Blue Moon in cans.

Yeah so I am on vacation in Florida (from Texas). I am cruising through the beer section of the local grocer (Publix) and decide to grab a six of some BMC swill (Blue Moon winter abbey ale) and I see Blue Moon in a can 12 packs.

Point of the story is it's weird how that surprised me. I have never seen Blue Moon in a can. Didn't even know it existed. I guess it doesn't matter much, but I don't think we get the cans in Texas. I wonder why?

Is that a new variety? I had never heard of it before. I am talking about the Abbey Ale, not in the cans.

It kinda makes me want to hurl. It's not the taste, that's OK. Just something about it makes me nauseous.

The Abbey ale is ok. I was rather limited at the time. It uses a little darker malt and some candi sugar. IS the difference very obvious, you might ask? I don't think so. It's Blue Moon. It is what it is.

I don't notice any hang overish effects with just a couple down the gullet, and honestly thats about all I drink at a time.

They came out with the cans earlier this year. I know we grabbed a couple 12 packs when we were camping in the spring. Its kind of nice since a lot of places wont allow glass.

I carry the 12 pack Blue Moon cans at the store I work at. They run $15-16. They're not really a hot seller so I'm going to discontinue them and maybe bring them back in the spring or summer.

surprised more places don't do cans, seems cheaper for them, and they can claim to be green.. like new belgium with their fat tire in a can. and oskar blues is all in can.

we all pour it into a glass anyway.. so who cares what it comes in.
