Memorial Day weekend is around the corner and craft brewers with a can-do attitude are shrugging off the notion that canned beers are thin and uninspired by offering many of their best brews in eco-friendly and portable aluminum packaging. These modern cans are lined with a thin wall of plastic that wards off any tinny flavors, while complete opacity keeps light at bay. Plus, their size and packaging makes them perfect for camping or a trip to the beach. Here are 10 of Imbibe Magazine's top picks.

21st Ammendment Brewery Brew Free or Die IPA
1 of 11
San Francisco, Calif. 7% ABV

A relative newcomer to the canned beer club, 21st Amendment’s IPA has an aromatic nose of big floral hops and a pleasantly bitter palate to match. Finishing smoothly with loads of creamy malts, this brew will pair with a variety of dishes, from potato salad to chicken skewers.
