Have beer, will travel

The list of craft in a can doesn't end here. I'm still searching for Minnesota's SURLY FURIOUS, Colorado's SKA MODUS HOPERANDI and, surprisingly, Connecticut's NEW ENGLAND SEA HAG IPA. With the craft beer industry still growing, expect more brewers to turn to cans in the coming years; the fact that highly-regarded NEW BELGIUM BREWING has started to can FAT TIRE is sure to have a ripple effect among other big-time craft brewers.

But don't assume that beer in a can has arrived just yet. On more than one accession I have brought canned craft beer to a party and been mocked roundly by my friends for it. That is, until they try it! So bring a few extra cans for your crew this summer and let's bust this myth once and for all.
