We do regular beer tastings at CHOW, and publish our results on the site. Back in March, we did a Spring Beer tasting: http://www.chow.com/food-news/109381/...
Our next tasting is coming up next week, and the focus is canned beers. Let me know if you have any suggestions of things we should be sure to include! We're aiming more toward summery beers, but nothing is necessarily off limits.
I already have a good list going, and includes the following:
New Belgium Shift
Uncommon Brewers - Golden State or Siamese Twin
Sierra Nevada Torpedo
Maui Brewing Bikini Blond
Oskar Blues Dale Pale Ale
Also hoping to include beers from Anderson Valley, Brewery Vivant, Sun King, Big Sky Brewing and 21st Ammendment.
Anything else I'm missing? What are your favorite canned beers for summer 2012?
