Although the best way to consume legal marijuana is through vapor or edibles (think of your lungs!), we’ve all been in a situation where we had some really dank weed and nothing to smoke it with.

Brewers nationwide are turning to cans when it comes to distributing their best canned craft beers. Liquor store shelves are slowly seeing bottles being replaced by cans and new breweries who are completely glass-free. Cans keep the light out, which ensures that bacteria can’t grow on the product.

In honor of the rising eco-friendly trend, here is a list of the best canned craft beers on the market today.
