Hoperatives: This Week In Beer

Canned Beers We Love Right Now: August 12, 2015

We are mixing things up a bit again this week and talking about canned beers that we love right now. Like the Beers We Love Right Now posts, these aren’t be long reviews analyzing the beers available in cans, just the name of the beer and a sentence or two about why it’s one (or more) of the canned beers we love right now.

Tom – Magic Hat Dream Machine IPL. Part of their Cantastic Variety pak which also includes Magic Hat #9 and, for fall, Wilhelm Scream – their pumpkin ale.

Carla – Whether you like it or not, the pumpkin and Oktoberfest beers are upon us. One of my favorite canned Oktoberfest beers is Franz from Rhinegeist. But, since it’s still really summer, I’m also still enjoying Steigl Grapefruit Radler in the 17 ounce cans. At only 2.5% ABV, it’s great for long late summer afternoons.

Jared – MadTree Shade is pretty delicious. Arcadia Sky High Rye is best fresh in cans. Oskar Blues 10 fidy. Its a World class imperial stout that you can take anywhere.

John – I just found a can of MadTree Citra High in my fridge. Even after aging for a few months behind a pickle jar and two jars of mustard it still tasted great. Looks like they just released a new batch in cans. Better to drink fresh, I’m sure.

Jessica – Two of my favorite canned beers are, unfortunately, not sold in the area. I really like Cigar City’s Florida Cracker and Terrapin’s Maggie’s Peach Farmhouse. Both are great in warm weather. The locally available canned beer I always enjoy is MadTree’s PsycHOPathy.
