Ah yes the Kroger near me has those oil cans for sale quite often. I like the lager a bit more myself.
Friday I got a taster of New Belgium's seasonal beer at a bar, it was called Somersault. There was a fruity flavor in it that I couldn't quite place that threw the whole thing off for me. I didn't like it. I finally went online to find out what it was: apricot. For me it was a pairing that didn't work.
Yes, evidently it does. I really liked it. A buddy of mine loads me up a 6-pack of different beers any time I help him out, and that one was the exclamation point. I still haven't had any of your beer yet, though, Sly--you still making it?
I find myself in the midst of an odd “can” phase. I haven’t drunk bear from cans in 25 years… I generally refuse to drink beers from bottles if it is also even available in cans. But I recently bought some Landshark in a special “commemorative” can (commemorating what, exactly, I am not certain).
The ONLY beer I enjoy from cans is the locally made Sun King beers.
IMO, anything out of the tap is better. Of course I've had my share of bad beer out of the tap. But as a general rule I always go with what's on tap first.
Does Sun King distribute out of Indiana? I'm always up for trying new beers.
Mmmm... the Sunlight Cream Ale is awesome, but still, IMO, not quite as good as it is out of the tap. But in comparison with other beers, I think the translation between tap and contained is pretty even.

Thanks, I checked their site earlier and couldn't find if they distributed out of state. Looks like they have some good brew though.
