Please help me find good beer in cans!

I am searching for beer available in cans or plastic (no glass allowed) other than the usual suspects (Bud, Coors, Miller, etc). I have found Boddingtons, Murphys, Guinness, and Hobgoblin Dark Ale, but does anyone know about any microbrews? Preferably available in New England?

Thank you!!!

  1. New England Brewery's beers are available in cans (including the fantastically named Sea Hag -- tastes great, actually), as are Brooklyn Brewery's lager and the Oscar Blues line, which includes Dale's Pale Ale, Old Chub Scotish ale and Gordon. A six pack or more of any of these beers would set you up right.

    1. If you go to the Oskar Blues website and click on "where to Buy", you see their distribution by state. Lots of places in new England region. For So Cal folks, they're partnering with Stone Brewery to bring Dales Pale into So Cal.

      1. Anything and everything from Oskar Blues.

        Others Im not sure if you can get but are great:

        Sly Fox

        Some of these you will be shocked came out of a can.

        2. Dales Pale is a good beer, I actually like it better in the can than on draft. Pork Slap in the can sucks.

          1. Thank you for the suggestions!
