Catching Up With The Can Van

Beer cans are in style these days. Not the kind holding the common bland, industrial lager, but the kind holding your favorite local craft brew. Canning beer has multiple benefits. It can be cheaper, easier to transport, prevents skunking, and you can bring cans to many places that you can't bring bottles, such as beaches. If this is something that you're looking for, the people at The Can Van are the fashionistas of the industry.

SweetWater Festive Ale Returns

Sweet Water Brewing in Atlanta releases its Winter Seasonal in the near future but we here at ACB got our hands on a bottle before they hit the shelves. With a promotional bottle at my house it felt like as good of a time as any to break open the 2011 bottle that I had been cellaring for the past year. Since it was a weeknight and both beers were over 8% (2011 - Bomber, 2012 - 12 oz) I decided to call a couple of friends over for the impromptu tasting.
