Just in time for summer barbecues and festivals, a couple of local breweries are rolling out some beers in can form.

A couple of weeks ago Heavy Seas Beer announced that its most popular brew, Loose Cannon, is being released in canned form, pictured. The famed IPA (cleverly renamed Loose CANnon) is available in most Baltimore area liquor stores.

And just today, I received a press release that Union Craft Brewing released its two flagship beers, Duckpin Pale Ale and Balt Altbier, in 12-ounce cans as well. Union's cans can be found at Baltimore retailers this week, and throughout Maryland in the next few weeks.

For those drinkers concerned that the can conversion will funk up the taste, Union co-founder Jon Zerivitz assures us that the can actually has added benefits (besides being lighter and easier to transfer).

"The can is the perfect package for our beer," he says. "It removes the threat of light and oxygen from affecting the quality of the beer and it can go places that glass cannot."
