Cool Canned Beer for the Pool
There’s nothing more American than an ice cold can of beer on a hot summer day. Whether you’re chillin’ poolside, picnicking in the park, or celebrating Memorial Day and the 4th of July, you’ll feel right at home with our huge selection of canned craft brews.
Long days in the sun beg for some beer. Summer is the perfect time for drinkable canned brews. Not only do aluminum cans keep your beer cold for longer periods of time, they’re also more convenient, lighter to transport, and much safer than glass bottles, which are not allowed at most beaches, parks and pools.
Unlike spring, which is the one season that lacks a distinct beer personality, craft brewers pull out all the stops for summer, unveiling their newest seasonal brews. Check your nearest store the latest product releases including local favorites. And don’t hesitate to ask a BevMologist for recommendations!

Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing – The haze craze, which began in New England and quickly spread across the country, has officially taken over the craft beer industry.

Pairs well with grilled ribs, sharp cheddar cheese and pineapple upside-down cake.

Sam ’76 – This revolutionary new craft brew is ideal for celebrating summer holidays. By experimenting with both lager and ale yeast strains, Sam Adams developed a unique brewing process that blends two active fermentations into a deliciously harmonious result.

ABV: 4.7%, IBU: 12
21st Amendment Brew Free or Die Blood Orange IPA – Four hop varieties and seven blood oranges go into this refreshingly different brew.

Modern Times Fortunate Islands – This tropical sensation combines the hop aromas of an IPA with the crisp, revitalizing drinkability of a pale ale.
