Top Canned Craft Beers, Chosen by Backpacker Magazine

craft_beer_445.jpgWhen most people think of canned beer, they think of mass market favorites like Bud, Coors, Miller. There are options out there, however, for canned craft beers, and the folks at Backpacker Magazine took on the thankless job of plowing through 23 varieties and identifying their favorites.

This means, of course, that good beer just became that much more portable, and you don't have to resort to "college beers" like PBR or the Beast if you're going somewhere that makes hauling a bunch of glass impractical. We haven't tried too many of the listed varieties, but we have had Dale's Pale Ale in a can and found it quite delicious. (Thanks for the tip, Fred)

At the moment there are almost 80 craft breweries with at least one beer being produced in a can, a number that is set to reach 100 by 2011. Many of these breweries are very small and don't distribute beyond their neighborhood, so to speak, so if you don't see your favorite brew from back home listed here (like Upslope Brewing and Half Acre Beer Company), it's not because we don't love it too, but searched for canned craft beers available to a minimum of three states.
See the short list at Backpacker.com.
