Apparently yesterday was the 200th anniversary of the invention of the can. Who knew? Well the Huffington Post did, and to mark the occasion they turned their attention to the best thing to ever be put in a can: Colorado craft beer!
Hit this link to check out their poll of the best Colorado canned beers available today. The voting system is pretty cool, as they present 12 slides of beers and invite you to rate each one on a scale of deliciousness, from 1 to 10. This is great because it doesn’t penalize lesser-known beers that would absolutely be buried by a popularity contest between them and rock starts like Dale’s Pale Ale. Good work Huff Post!
If I had to pick my fave on the list, it would definitely be #6, as it strikes me as miracle that such a big beer can come out of a can. It also hurts my heart a bit that Fat Tire is in second place in a taste poll. Really? Fat Tire?
Hat tip to friend of the site and Colorado wildman Clyde Soles for pointing us to the poll.
