One of the best things about living in Upstate New York, aside from our great local beers, is camping! August brings great camping weather, and we have the perfect beers to pack for your adventure.

All of the beers that we're recommending are available in cans. As a camper, cans make perfect sense because they take up less space, they're lighter, they won't shatter, and they're easy to carry with you when you pack up and move on.

Have fun and enjoy responsibly!

Here are our recommendations of craft cans to enjoy while camping this month:

    Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin

    It’s Ballast Point’s award-winning Sculpin with a citrus twist! The tart freshness of grapefruit perfectly complements the IPA’s citrus hoppy character. This brew is like a picnic in a can.

    Long Trail Summer Ale

    Hit the hiking trails with Long Trail’s summer seasonal. This unfiltered golden ale has a soft Pilsner malt character and a distinct citrus hop aroma from the dry-hopped additions of Citra hops.

    Saratoga Local Session IPA

    Session beers emphasize craft beer taste with a low ABV, which is what you want for a weekend in the woods. This local session IPA was made for all day drink-ability. Brewed fresh in Saratoga Springs.
