If you can get the Surly lineup, they make the best canned beers I've tried, but unfortunately, they aren't available in the VA/DC/MD/PA/NC/WV area that I hike in most of the time. We've got a lot of canned beer options, and I've tried most of them. The Oskar Blues varieties are still the winners in terms of what is readily available, but canned Guinness and Bodingtons aren't bad options, either, when Oskar Blues isn't available.

That said, I'm far more likely to pack in a tiny plastic bottle of an Irish cream or a sipping tequilla than I am to carry beer on the trail. For group trips, those tiny juice boxes of wine are pretty good options -- Target (in my area at least) carries a line of those wines that are above average. The Merlot, in particular, stands out.

Sorry ... didn't mean to thread drift. Back on topic, beer in cans: Surly if you can get it, Oskar Blues as a close runner up.

21A in a can is NOT brewed in California, it is a Midwest product trucked around the country.

The 21A production brewery is in Cold Spring MN.

You won't see it on their packaging.
You won't hear it on their ads.

They keep it pretty quiet, but are open about it.

thanks! the hellor high watermelon looks good. i'd like to try it.
UPDATE: i got a response from 21A (diana pierce) who confirmed that they brew at another brewery, using borrowed equipment. she likened it to coming to my house, and making her killer lasagna using my pans. ok, fair enough. their beer is still good.

te-wa

I drank some of that Watermelon beer this summer rafting the Snake. It tastes like watermelon! Watermelon beer, yep. Good beer for what it is. Sorta like the Rogue "Bacon Maple Beer" made for Voodoo doughnut. My buddy is the merchandising guy for Voodoo and he got me one (you have to buy a case of 22s or something weird IIRC) It tastes like bacon maple beer- straight up. Its good for what it is, but its one of those beers you drink one and then go back to a 'normal' beer. John at the Rogue is a ridiculous brewmaster for being able to get those flavors so right. but like I said... weird as hell.

Anyway the Hellor High Watermelon is definitely drinkable and good for chillin in the sun on a raft fo sho.

Beer in a plastic bottle on 01/14/2012 22:03:47 MST Print View

I was on a private GCNP raft trip and someone brought bottles of Anchor Steam. WTF? Bottles?!? On a raft trip? But they were brown plastic bottles that looked just like brown glass bottles from 5 feet away.

Best beer name and slogan (which I noticed first while barhopping in Utah with one of Alaska's few micro-brewpub owners):

Wasatch Beer's: Polygamy Porter "Why have just one"

"Best beer name"

Polygamy Porter is a good one, but I like the Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. beer names:

Old Leghumper, Stud Service Stout, Barktoberfest, and 12 Dogs of Christmas Ale.

David,
I once attended a "beer tasting party" where we all brought craft beer, served them in plastic cups (for anonymity) and voted on our favorite.

My submission was Moose Drool, and it won!

Then again, my submission was one of the first few tasted (out of 20 or so different beers), and we were all pretty sloppy by the time we got to the other submissions :D

Konrad,

When we tasted wine to pick one for our wedding, we lined up 8masked bottles and collected people's opinions (our's counted the most). It was striking how different one's impressions could be going 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 versus 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. But I think we did small enough sips that everyone was still sober when we marked our ballots.

Just did my final rack of my first batch of Ben's home brew IPA. I need to find a way to get it in a light container. Wish me luck.
