While beer out of a can usually gets a bad rap (c'mon, we've all done it), Great Basin plans to change that with the release of 12-packs of Icky in cans this month. A beer truly worthy of the merits associated with canned beer. Having zero exposure to light, the delicate alpha acids and flavor compounds are protected from spoilage and are preserved perfectly. Also, cans are often able to go where glass bottles fear to tread, they don't shatter, and they're easily portable for that lake or backpacking trip this summer!
Look for 12-packs in stores later this month.
