It’s summertime, and the living’s easy. How about making your drinking choices easy, too? Canned drinks are all the rage, with everything from beer to wine to cider being served in tin. Here, the 4 canned beverages to drink now.
Beer: Icelandic Arctic Berry Ale
There is nothing quite as refreshing as an iced cold beer on a steamy summer day. And the Einstök’s Arctic Berry Ale is the perfect complement for summer outdoor events such as cookouts and beach or pool parties. A unique small-batch witbier flavored with Icelandic bilberries hand-picked just 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle, its crisp flavor pairs perfectly with a wide range of summer dishes, including fish and poultry, sushi, spicy food, citrus salads and desserts. In addition to the subtle notes of Icelandic bilberries, the Arctic Berry Ale features wheat malt, pilsner malt, oats and Bavarian hops for a crisp and flavorful taste with a clean finish.
Available at select retailers, including BevMo, Publix, Total Wine and more.

Cider: Wolffer No.139 Dry White Cider
We are already fans of Wölffer Winery’s iconic Summer in a Bottle and Finca rosé wines, and are now crushing on the canned Wölffer No. 139 Dry White Cider 2015. Sourced exclusively from New York dessert apples grown by the Halsey family at their orchard only 3.6 miles from the vineyard, it’s a vibrant, crisp, versatile, and food-friendly sparkling dry cider that evokes the bohemian Hamptons lifestyle and spirit that inspired its creation. It’s the perfect sip to pack up for the park or the beach and elegant enough to serve up at a backyard BBQ.
