Beer in a Can – Yum!

Believe it or not, there are some good beers that come in cans these days.  Way back when I first started drinking beer, the only good beers from a can were Guinness and Boddingtons – today, more breweries are using cans.  I think brewers started to realize there was really a practical use for canned beers; they’re especially good for outdoor events where you can’t bring bottles.

Oskar Blues Brewery is one of the first “real” craft breweries to use only cans or kegs.  My favorite beer from Oskar Blues is their “Old Chub”.  This Scottish Style Ale is delicious, boasting lots of roasted malts and even hints of caramel.  At 8% ABV, it’s not a “light” beer by any means, but it’s a dream for most beer lovers who enjoy a nice big beer with a malty, even toffee like finish.

So don’t scoff at the can – give it a try.
