This is my summer of canned beer

So, for no particular reason other than it seems like a good idea, I've decided to make this my summer of canned beer (a few years ago it was my summer of fruit-adjunct beer). And, things are looking good. Here's what I've found so far, and will be trying over the next few months. Some are available nationally, some locally. If you have ideas for me to try in my travels, I'm open to suggestion. I'm trying many things from craft brews to name-brand imports, but I plan on avoiding the majors. Also, I'm not a Guiness fan, so thanks but no thanks.

Pilsner Urquell tall can
OK from Poland
Tetley's with a widget
Wexford with a widget
Boddington's with a widget
Wittekirk Belgian (I've found this only in Atlanta so far)
Bavik Belgian (ditto)
Surly (craft brew local only to Minneapolis)
Gluek's (also a craft brew local to the twins)
Heineken
Sapporo oil can
Foster's oil can
Stite (I don't know if this counts - it's technically a metal bottle)
