5 Beers We'd Love to See in Cans

A plethora of beer styles, from a ton of craft breweries, can now be found in cans from very approachable amber ales to complex Belgian Dubbels and Russian Imperial Stouts. Its a certainty that the options will continue to grow and we thought it would be fun to showcase 5 beers we'd love to see get canned.

 

5. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is one of the most drinkable and well known craft brews on the market. Imagine how great being it would be to be able to take a 12-pack of these on a camping trip! I can't help but think its only a matter of time...

 

4. Three Floyds' Gumballhead is consistently rated as one of the best beers of its style (Pale Wheat Ale). Smooth, light-bodied with lots of flavor. An excellent choice if Three Floyds ever had to choose only one of their beers to put in a can. 

 

3. Troegs Brewing's Nugget Nectar, an "Imperial Amber Ale", is ridiculously hoppy but at 7.5% ABV its well worthy of being canned and sold in four-packs. Imagine how fresh those hops would taste even in the off-season. 

 

2. Terrapin's Rye Pale Ale not only has one of the greatest labels but its also a hell of a session-able brew. The rye adds some spiciness to this very solid pale ale. Put it in cans and you've got an extremely practical and transportable beer. All you folks in Georgia would love it (even more)!

 

1. Bear Republic's Racer 5 IPA is pure hop heaven. I can't tell you how many times this has been my go to beer at the beer bar just because I am craving a heavy dose lupulin goodness. This was left off my initial list until some good beer-loving soul mentioned it. I had totally forgotten, shame on me.

 

Wild Card - Russian River's Temptation, a blonde ale aged in oak barrels, would really turn some heads if it was canned. Talk about challenging the beliefs of many a beer geek. I say, why not? Pour it into a glass, like any other can of craft beer, and you've got yourself something amazing (regardless of its packaging)!
