Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

If you are anything like me, you spend most of the day (or previous days) thinking about the beers that you wish to put together for you next tasting, review, and ratings. I had my first American craft beer out of a can recently at Ed’s house (beer drinking friend). I guess I was fortunate as he shared his last Furious by Surly Brewing Company. What a fantastic beer!
Ed shared with me his knowledge of why putting beer in a can is more beneficial to storing beer than in a bottle. adidas neo After tasting Furious, I guess I couldn’t agree more! 🙂
He also told me about Oskar Blues Grill & Brew: how they were the first American craft brewery to start using cans.
So Ed gave me a Bender from Surly Brewing Company and hasn’t stopped asking if I have tried it. 😉 Beer can number 1. I purchased a four-pack of Gordon and a six-pack of Dale’s Pale Ale both from Oskar Blues Grill & Brew while on my brewery hop to Wisconsin. Beer cans number 2 and 3. My final can via the Ed route also: Modus Hoperandi from Ska Brewing Company. He gave this to me for picking him up some beer while on the brewery hop in Wisconsin. The final and beer can number 4.
So my next tasting of beer will have the beer can theme. I know that all of these beers are really good (snuck a Dale’s already) and I can’t wait to give them all a taste tonight. Enjoy!
