Craft Beer … In a Can!

Is there anything better than sipping an ice cold can of beer while sitting poolside? For years craft lovers haven’t been able to enjoy this simple pleasure since their preferred beers were almost exclusively available in glass bottles, which are justifiably banned from just about every pool in the country. In recent years, however, craft brewers have started producing more pool-friendly canned beers. So have the best beer selection on the block at your next pool party with this selection of world-class beers!

21st Amendment Back in Black

Inspired by Paul Revere’s midnight ride, the San Francisco brewery rebelled against the British style IPA, embracing the more aggressive American version and then recasting it in bold, brave, defiant black. Black in Black is a Declaration of Independence from the tyranny of the expected.

21st Amendment Brew Free! or Die IPA

Brew Free! or Die IPA is brewed with some serious west coast attitude! This aromatic golden IPA starts with three different hops to the nose, quickly balanced by a solid malt backbone supporting the firm bitterness. 21st Amendment’s flagship beer, this IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more.

21st Amendment Down to Earth

Down to Earth is the natural evolution of Bitter American, 21st Amendment’s original session ale. Whether you’re putting a long day behind you or you have a full afternoon ahead, this session IPA will help keep things real. More relaxed than an IPA, but with all the hop aroma and flavor, this is a tribute to unsung heroes and unplanned adventures.

21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon

In the pursuit of innovative beer, there is no obstacle too great. No journey too long. No fruit too gigantic. This American wheat beer is brewed with real watermelon, for a flavor that’s surprisingly crisp, dry and refreshing. It’s summer in a can!

Anchor Brotherhood Steam

Inspired by the classic Anchor Steam, Brotherhood Steam Beer is brewed with its own unique recipe. A distinct malt bill gives the beer its copper color, and dry-hopping with Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops adds aromatic hints of citrus and mint. The result is a smooth, full-bodied malt flavor with a lingering, fresh hop finish.

Anchor California Lager

A tribute to California brewing history, California Lager is made with two-row California barley, Cluster hops, and Anchor’s own lager yeast. This all-malt brew is kräusened and lagered in Anchors cellars giving it its golden color, distinctive aroma, creamy head, balanced depth of flavor, and smooth finish.

Anchor IPA

It was Anchor that revived the art of the dry-hopped ale in the United States in the late 70s and Anchor IPA is the modern evolution of that revival. Made with 2-row barley malt and fresh whole-cone hops, its bright amber color, distinctively complex aroma, spiky bitterness, malty depth, and clean finish unite to create a uniquely flavorful, memorable, and timeless craft IPA.

Anchor Summer Beer

The crisp, clean flavors of Anchor Summer Beer are refreshingly light, a thirst-quenching American-style filtered wheat beer. This all-malt craft beer has over 50% of its malt derived from malted wheat and is fermented with a traditional top-fermenting “ale” yeast, yielding a clean, balanced flavor that highlights the refreshingly light flavor of malted wheat.

Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose

Blood Orange Gose is a tart, refreshing wheat ale that is kettle-soured with lactobacillus and brewed with sea salt and coriander.  However, unlike traditional versions of the style, this beer features liberal additions of blood oranges during fermentation.  This imparts tangy citrus notes that complement the champagne-like flavors, creating a complex and sessionable ale perfect for any occasion.

Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale

Balance is what makes Boont Amber Ale so unique: rich, crystal malts give this beer a deep copper hue and contribute a slight caramel sweetness while the herbal, spicy bitterness from carefully selected whole-cone hops impart a crisp, clean finish.  Hints of sun toasted grain, toffee, and fruity esters compliment the mellow, noble hop aroma.

Anderson Valley The Kimmie, the Yink, and the Holy Gose

With a bright, golden color and tight creamy head, the earthy wood undertones in Anderson Valley’s Gose develop into a light mineral aroma with a hint of lemon zest and tropical fruit. The finish is dry, effervescent, and lemon tangy, reminiscent of a fresh sea breeze.

Anderson Valley Hop Ottin’ IPA

Brewed and dry-hopped with copious amounts of Columbus and Cascade, this beer is a showcase of the bright citrusy aromas, bold grapefruit and pine-like flavors, and resiny bitterness that hop heads crave.  With a brilliant, deep amber color and solid malt backbone, hints of citron, roses, and bergamot climax with a dry, herbal finish in this well-balanced interpretation of a West Coast IPA.

Anderson Valley Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish.  With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique flavors and superior drinkability make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot summer day.

Blanche de Bruxelles

Brewed using 40% soft wheat, Blanche de Bruxelles has a naturally opalescent color with a very white, dense head. Although soft and smooth on the palate, as is typical of soft wheat beers, this light and well-balanced white beer is very fresh. Its complex aroma and modest alcohol content make Blanche de Bruxelles a beer like no other.

Brooklyn Lager

Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma and caramel malts that show in the finish. Brooklyn uses the British technique of dry-hopping to make this flavorful, refreshing, Viennese-style beer an American classic.

Brooklyn Summer Ale

Brooklyn Summer Ale is a refreshing, flavorful pale ale perfect for all your warm weather adventures. British 2-row barley brings its famed bready flavors, capped off with German and American hops to provide a snappy, clean bitterness and a bright, floral aroma.

Christian Moerlein Strawberry Pig

Brewed to celebrate the Flying Pig Marathon in its hometown of Cincinnati, this traditional cream ale has an added dash of summertime flavor. Eating a fresh strawberry is always a clear sign that summer is at hand making it the perfect flavor for this summer seasonal.

Rogue American Amber Ale

American Amber Ale has been a flagship product of Rogue since 1988 when it was originally known as Ashland Amber. Tawny amber in color with a toffee aroma, tight head, and a delicate roasted malt accent, this craft beer classic has generous use of hops and a smooth finish.

Shiner Bock

Brewed with rich roasted barley malt and German specialty hops, this lightly hopped American-style dark lager always goes down easy. Originally a seasonal beer, it was so widely popular that it has remained a year-round offering since 1973.

Shiner Prickly Pear

Doubly good in triple digits, this unique summer seasonal is made with the fruit of the Prickly Pear, a cactus native to Shiner’s hometown in Texas. This unique fruit gives the beer a tart, citrusy flavor and a crisp finish. It’s officially the best use of a cactus yet!

 

Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA

Finest Kind IPA is a salute to the glory of the American hop grower. A light bodied and crisp beer with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as it’s bottle it unfiltered. At 73.5 IBU’s, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that’s not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

 

Smuttynose Vunderbar! Pilsner

Take a break from the Sturm und Drang of modern life, with this elegant, refreshing pilsner. Smuttynose created Vunderbar! with both feet grounded in tradition, focusing on authentic German pilsner malt and spicy Czech Saaz hops. The result just might get you to shimmy into your favorite lederhosen, bust into a quick schuhplattler and loudly proclaim, “Das ist Vunderbar!”

 

Uinta Baba Black Lager

Robust and smooth, this full-flavored lager is exceptionably drinkable and pitch black in color. A part of Uinta’s Organic Line, Baba Black Lager is made with organic hops and barley and has earned the USDA Organic Seal, one of the world’s leading organic standards.

 

Uinta IPA Duo

How about a two-for-one deal? This summer Uinta is offering the IPA Duo 12-pack where you can get all the hops you can handle in one convenient package! The 12-pack includes six cans of the Salt Lake City brewer’s popular Hop Nosh IPA and six of the classic Trader Session IPA:

 

Uinta Hop Nosh

Embracing their inner foodie, Uinta brewed Hop Nosh with so much hop character that it is literally a hoppy snack! Bold and refreshing, this IPA combines an abundance of hops with a smooth malt profile and comes in at a whopping 82 IBUs.

 

Uinta Trader Session IPA

Noted for its bright hop character, this sessionable IPA is wonderfully balanced with strong hop character with some pine and floral influences. Finishes clean with a delicate malt flavor and a hint of citrus zest. While traditionally paired with bold flavors found in Indian curries, Trader pairs well with seafood dishes such as fried calamari.

 

Uinta Sum’r

Citrusy and thirst-quenching, this refreshing organic golden ale is highlighted by the use of Sorachi hops, an uncommon hop from Japan, and balanced with lighter malts. Citrusy, fresh, and clean, Sum’r is an easy companion to most foods on the summer grill such as chicken, fish, and burgers.

 

Victory Summer Love

There are plenty of reasons to love summer, and here is one great one! German hops and pale malt blend beautifully to create this refreshing taste of summer. This light-bodied ale casts a golden hue reminiscent of the sun shining on a warm, summer day.

 

Woodchuck Amber

Amber was the first cider crafted in Woodchuck’s two-car garage back in 1991 and the recipe remains the same today as that first hand-filled bottle. Amber is a traditional cider boasting big red apple taste expertly crafted with a medium body, golden hue, and refreshing clean apple finish.

 

Woodchuck Summer

Summertime is the exact right time for sipping cider. Woodchuck Summer Time delivers a crisp apple cider topped off with a touch of blueberry juice. A cider crafted to be as refreshing as a summer day is long.
