One of my favorite things in the last few years is going into the beer store and seeing what new offering has been packed in a 12-pk of cans.  I went to the store yesterday and got a 12 of Brooklyn Lager and a 12 of Lawson's Super Session.  Glorious times...

 

I also see that Founders has started packaging All Day in a legit 24 can case.  Good stuff.

Jacks Abby has a mix pack of 4 one hop beers that are like 4.5% so a session beer. Cites beau, Galaxy beau, Nelson Beau and another I can’t remember. Nice light easy drinker for the hot days or as filler after some heavy hitters.

I'll have to keep an eye out for that.  I usually don't like the mix packs because I don't drink beers over 6% abv and there's always a heavy IPA or something in there that I just won't drink.

Cans are a superior package, there's really no dispute.

Not a big fan of mixed packs, but victory's was pretty good. Their low cal ipa is probably my favorite of the style. Def better than all day.

I've just never been a fan of the All Day. I would rather drink their Gold lager or whatever it's called.
