We get it: canned beer is a splurge, and by the time you hit the third mile, you definitely don’t want to be the one stuck hauling the 12-pack. But if you’re taking a mellower approach to your next trip and can afford to bring along a few packed-oat sodas, ditch the usual tinnies and try out these eclectic canned craft brews instead. Trust us: You’ll be glad you did.
