With Evil Twin releasing several beers in the pint can format recently (and more on the way!), we decided to cap off our 22n Anniversary celebration with a tasting of several favorites using the format. With cans in general seeing overwhelmingly positive performance in the craft beer scene over the last decade, we are now starting to see the evolution into providing variety and choices in can sizes as well. 12oz will always be the vast consumer favorite as it has become imprinet into our consciousness as our 'single serving' for most beverages. But most beer drinkers are tired of seeing their pint glasses not getting filled to the top when drinking at home, so this format is very welcome. It also plays into the cost effectiveness of cans, shipping costs, and even use of shelf space; we love them here, as a full case of pints make a nice tidy stack on our shelves. A lot of 'big' beers are getting packaged in this form now, and the cost to the customer is generally greatly improved from bottle, and the pint is the ideal single serving size for many, as well as a fair size to share between two people. For the lighter beers, it's a hearty full glass you can pour to the top, finally! We have really dug this format since the beginning, and are thrilled they have caught on full force across the craft beer community.
On deck for the tasting today are the Escutcheon '4th & 1' Pilsner, Peak Organic 'Super Fresh' Dry Hopped Pilsner, Evil Twin 'Imperial Simcoe Slacker' Imperial IPA, Against The Grain 'Brown Note' Brown Ale, Fullsteam 'Coffee Is For Closers' Iced Coffee Porter, and Evil Twin 'Even More Jesus' Imperial Stout. Hope to see you here!
