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

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

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

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

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

6. 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.

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

4. 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.

3. NOLA Brewing Rebirth Pale Ale: Buying Rebirth Pale Ale supports the Roots of Music, so it’s already parade friendly.

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

1. Southern Prohibition Jack the Sipper: This excellent take on the British ESB style combines English hops, English malt and Mississippi magic.
