Seeing these cans in person reinforces my opinion that this is really handsome packaging, and the current Deschutes labels and branding are terrific in can format. The beer inside is a known quantity, and good choices for the canned treatment, though I’m alread looking ahead and forward to the next beers to be canned.
I may do a side-by-side tasting of these canned beers against their bottled versions (per my wife’s question/suggestion), though empirically I already know from similiar past experiments that the canned version usually presents better.
Pacific Pineapple from 2 Towns is joining their year-round lineup (I had mistakenly thought it was a seasonal at first), and will appear in the 500ml bottles (as above) and also in 12-ounce cans in the cidery’s variety packs. I’ll report on this as I drink it.
