Do cans or bottles preserve beer better? The debate rages on, but there's a clear winner when it comes to convenience: Cans are more portable, more durable, and faster to chill. More craft breweries than ever are choosing to can their beers, which is a boon to those who love to drink outdoors. The beer selection at Berkeley Bowl West has always been awe-inspiring, but lately, the beloved grocery store has been rocking a vast (and ever-increasing) collection of canned beers. Some of the best include Sculpin, San Diego brewery Ballast Point's award-winning IPA, and Stiegl's Radler, which is ideal for laidback summertime drinking, as it's made with half beer and half grapefruit soda. And of course, there are canned beers from 21st Amendment and Sierra Nevada, if you prefer to drink locally. So if you are planning a camping trip, prepping for a beach outing, or simply wanting to stack as many beers as possible into your cooler, Berkeley Bowl West is sure to make you hoppy.
