2012 Festival Season Canned Beer Thread
Posted 17 May 2012 - 04:48 AM
So I read, hoping somehow it will be at the packy in Greenfield.
Their packy downtown has one of the best beer selections I've ever seen. If anyone will have it, I'm sure they would. I forget the name of the place, but it's on the right on main street if you're traveling east right in the center of town.

Is Sierra Pale in a can not coming to the East Coast? I'm excited for that one too.
Its at my liquor store in RI. Had one with dinner tonight. Front of the can reads "can conditioned". My first reaction was that it tasted different, before I even read the label. Maybe not quite as hoppy/punchy as the bottles and draft. Not sure, could have been in my head or maybe the mouthfeel of the aluminum, i drank it right from the can.

Sierra Nevada cans are on the East Coast, they just aren't carried by a lot of distributors. I have only one place but i can get Pale Ale and torpedo cans there. Torpedo pounders are easily the best canned beer ever made
I need to get some more Pale Ale cans soon.

I really wish these were more readily available throughout all of New England, otherwise I'd be bringing nothing but these (and be completely broke at the same time ) Big fan of the Pork Slap, too...I usually bring a bunch of those to the Vibes
Sounds like they are working on increasing their distribution, albeit slowly. To be honest, I'm rooting for them, but I really don't want them to get too big.
I'm headed up there next weekend so I'm gonna stock up.. as much as I can afford anyways.
