The past year has brought a stream of new canned craft beers. Here are my top 10 picks for new craft cans, all ready for their first Carnival appearances.

Tin Roof Turnrow: This spiced wheat ale is light, refreshing and not too malty or bitter. It's a nice beer palate cleanser.

Anchor California Lager: This clean-finishing, flavorful lager has a pleasant grain character.

Abita Strawberry HarvestLager: While this popular seasonal beer has been around for many years, this is the first year it's available in cans.

Sierra Nevada Nooner Pilsner: This German-style pilsner has a crisp and spicy hop profile that comes from its all-German hops.

Terrapin Hi-5 IPA: This is a great everyday IPA with strong hop flavor and aroma from the brewery's use of Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Centennial hops for dry-hopping.

Great Raft Southern Drawl: This flagship lager from Shreveport illustrates the art and science of the perfect lager, which is subtle, clean, delicate and delicious.

Founders Brewing All Day IPA: This will be the beer I pick up most often for parades this year. It comes in 15-packs for between $16 and $18, and it is ridiculously drinkable and tasty.

NOLA Brewing Rebirth Pale Ale: Buying Rebirth Pale Ale supports the organization The Roots of Music, so it's doubly parade friendly.

Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt: This black lager is a more robust, roasty, malty version of the pale lager.

Southern Prohibition Jack the Sipper: This excellent take on the British extra special bitter style com- bines English hops, English malt and Mississippi magic. — NORA McGUNNIGLE
