21st Amendment Brew Free or Die from a can is awesome. Also, Ska brewing is all cans and quite delicious in their own right.

Also, Mexican beer should never be included in any taste tasting. Ever. Anywhere.

Now if I had to pick a BMC style beer out of the lot, I'd reach for a Genesee Cream ale. But I didn't see it in the short list so it must not be good enough.

Ten Fidy is one of my favorite beers of all time! Does anyone know if any of these breweries are canning their beer unfiltered? I know Surly started off that way but just wonder about the shelf life.

There is a craft brew that comes in cans that is available in the Cape Cod / Falmouth area, a really fantastic lager. Wish I remembered the brewery - it came in a green can that had an intricate logo on it. I'd buy a case of that in a heartbeat.

EDIT: Found it! Cisco Brewery on Nantucket. I had the Summer Lager. Super good stuff, but hard to get off Cape Cod.

Southern Star and Oskar Brewing do some pretty good things and those are out of cans.

I think there are pros and cons to craft can beer. To me it generally seems to have great head retention/head. Ive had a ton of good craft bottles that had no head/lacing. Not that all of them do and not that it always matters,its just something I notice. Ive had a lot of flatish/metallic cans too.Ive had metallic bottles too,so its not a myth it happens time to time. Last I remember too is that older grain can give that metallic quality to beer.
And also +1 they need to dimm those damn lights in the craft beer section. They also need to learn how to store and handle craft beer better-they are not some cheap cheeze-nips.
