21st amendment is the only other one i can think of. Rivertowne does cans, but I hate their stuff. Slyfox does cans and bottles.

Was at my beer emporium last evening and they already sold all of their 50 case stock of Nugget Nectar. I had no idea it was so limited. They were selling it for $45 so I wouldn't have bought it anyway.

Maybe we'll see a comeback of cone top beer cans?

That would be a cool novelty but I doubt anyone still has the machinery in place to make those.

I haven't had anything from a can in years. To be honest, it skeeved me out a bit when I was pouring, and the beer was flowing over the lip. I feel like I need to sanitize the top of the can next time. Paranoid, I know.

Next time you open a bottle, take a white napkin and rub it over the lip. You won't feel great about that either. Though this usually applies to macros.

My wife had mentioned something similar one day when she was opening a can of beans and the lid fell in. She freaked out about how dirty the lid is.. I had never even thought of that, nor with beer, but I can certainly see it as a valid cause for concern, especially for germaphobes.

Here's a site that has a pretty comprehensive list of canned beers:

I've only ever had two. One was an IPA that tasted absolutely awful and the other was some sort of pineapple beer, which I wasn't a fan of, so I've been hesitant to try more.

RT Lager, Great White, and Babbling Blonde are pretty good actually.

Their Scottish Ale isn't bad either

I've had Great White and Wit-o-maker. Both were solid Wits. I wouldn't buy a case, but I'd drink em if they were there.

I see a lot of high end beer in cans these days. I think with the better linings in cans now bottles have lost their edge as the best way to sell beer.

Rivertowne is hit and miss with me.

Either Anderson Valley just started doing cans or I've only seen them recently.

I don't think they sell it up north yet, but Cigar City from Tampa has several pretty good beers in cans (I like the Florida Cracker--nice wit beer).

I had the Miles Davis one several years ago. It was really dark and rich with lots of interesting flavors (I think they rooibos root or something?). It was definitely worth having, but also definitely not an easy drinking beer.

B*tches Brew is good not great. It has some bitterness and a strange salty finish. Posted last night - it's actually similar to ten fidy.

I wish they distributed up here. They have several highly regarded saisons that I'd like to try.

I almost got that yesterday too. I know someone mentioned that it has become more widely distributed, which I've noticed as well, and that the quality has gone down.

Having New Holland Night Tripper tonight. I have to say, I like this better than the Ten Fidy. It's not as aggressive as Ten Fidy. I think it also exemplifies the difference between an American Imperial and an RIS. RIS's always tend to be a little too much for me. This is more drinkable and I think I can easily enjoy a bomber of this while 12 oz of Ten Fidy is enough.
