Of course, I grew up during a time when the selection of canned beverages was limited to Four Lokos or your typical assortment of lukewarm beers. That’s to say, there wasn’t much that I wanted to pick from, much less drink. Nowadays, the canned alcoholic beverage industry looks a lot different. In fact, it’s booming, which has paved the way for tons of glowed-up boozy canned beverages to emerge in the market.
as they say, wisdom comes with age—which is apparent when reflecting on how my drinking preferences have changed over the years. For context, 21(ish)-year-old me would take down a Solo cup full of fluorescent “juice” that was poured from a very questionable neon orange beverage cooler without batting an eyelid. 30-year-old me would never… at least not in most cases.
