Fast forward 5 years and canned craft beer sales have rocketed 250% year on year, and have inspired a whole host of excellent breweries to change to tinnies. They're cheaper. They're recyclable. And thanks to a clever water based lining inside the can, they don't taste metallic. In fact, many of them taste absolutely great.
These are three of our top selling cans available in the shop. Best enjoyed in the sun.
Our best selling beer, Gamma Ray is full of hoppy goodness. As the boys at the brewery say, it's: 'a brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit.'
Thanks to moving to a new brewing site in 2015, Yorkshire based Magic Rock are going from strength to strength. Their grapefruit IPA is made with 100% natural grapefruit flavour which is brilliantly integrated in an American-inspired pale ale. A brilliant sundowner.
This is a beer for those not afraid of flavour. Dark Star are an older-than-average craft brewery that started in 1994 with not much more than a home brewing kit and a whole lot of enthusiasm. They focus on characteristic, full-on hopped styles and Revelation is a great example of this type of beer.
