10 Canned American Craft Beers You’ve Got To Try

Canned beer is no longer synonymous with the watered down swill that was barely good enough to grace your beer pong table. Now, more than 500 craft brewers across the country are encasing some of their best brews in aluminum.

But why? For one, a can shuts out light that can affect the taste of beer, and it’s believed that they cool down faster. Not to mention, cans are also more compact and easier to transport—and they’re safer to guzzle down next to the pool. Have we convinced to join the can revolution? Then consider stocking your cooler with these ten tasty canned brews.


Upslope Brewing

Upslope Brewing

UPSLOPE IMPERIAL INDIA PALE ALE
Colorado, upslopebrewing.com
Robust, yet refreshing, Upslope’s India Pale Ale features hints of melon and pineapple and notes of citrus and pine, with a touch of toffee on the finish. Drink it on its own, or pair it with a plate of fish tacos. Plus, clocking in at 19.2 ounces and 10% alcohol by volume, there’s more beer to love.

Abita

ABITA PURPLE HAZE
Louisiana, abita.com
Think of Abita’s Haze as dessert in a can. The lager is brewed with real raspberries (in fact, you may actually see fruit pulp in your drink) that serve up a pop of sweetness, fruitiness, and tartness. Enjoy it with cheese, citrus, dessert, or as a stand-alone end-of-meal treat.

Sixpoint

Sixpoint

SIXPOINT SWEET ACTION
New York, sixpoint.com
Sixpoint’s Sweet Action is where bitter-meets sweet. This hard-to-pin-down beer is kind of a wheat, yet kind of an ale, yet kind of a cream ale—but fully delicious. Just try it.

Tallgrass Beer

Tallgrass Beer

TALLGRASS 8-BIT
Kansas, tallgrassbeer.com
Meet the official beer of retro-gamers (really). While we don’t totally know what that means, we do know that this brew blends the flavors of a classic American pale ale with the tropical notes of Australian-grown galaxy hops.

Oskar Blues

You may not think you like dark beers, but this Scottish strong ale could just change your mind. The malty treat features cocoa and coffee flavors with a touch of smoke.

Harpoon Brewery

HARPOON IPA
Massachusetts, harpoonbrewery.com
Ever wondered what a New England summer would taste like? Harpoon IPA captures that vibe with its malt undertone and hoppy finish.

Sopro Brewing

MISSISSIPPI FIRE ANT IMPERIAL RED ALE
Mississippi, soprobrewing.com
As you might guess from its fiery mascot, this beer packs a punch. If you’re not careful, it’s boozy 8.0% ABV could leave you on your ass, but its depth of flavor, with a mix of caramel notes, spice, and fruitiness, will surely delight your taste buds.
