Wine Shouldn't be Hard - Don't Underestimate Canned Wine !

Somewhere between the boxed wine of our college days and high end bottles of vino lies canned wine. Cans of wine are one of the fastest-growing forms of alternative wine packaging on the market making wine more accessible and easier to carry. Wine lovers can find an increasing array of brands from domestic and international producers and some are new canned-only brands. Wine in a can enables wine to taken to different venues from the beach, to the lake, the mountains and live music venues. It also makes the perfect party contribution.

We love wine in the can at the hop yard and have discovered many delicious wines that are packaged this way. You can buy various canned wines from us to drink at the bar (we will give you a glass !) or to take out on the go. From reds to whites to rosés, these are some of our favorites.

Underwood - Union Wine Company

Oregon based underwood canned wines draw from the diverse palette of vineyards and wine growing regions that Oregon offers to create approachable everyday drinking wines.  Underwood produce delicious canned wines including a Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sparking Rose and Sparkling Brut and also some great radlers for the summer ! 

Uppercut Wins

Uppercut make an extremely drinkable Red Blend, White Blend and a Rose in fun, attractive cans. 

Infinite Monkey Theorem

The infinite monkey theorem claim to be an urban winery operated out of the back alleys of Denver and Austin. They consider their wines as not only expressions of the local fruit, the process, and the personality of the winemaker, but also expressions of the people drinking the wine. Infinite Monkey theorem do some great wines and ciders by the can. Their wines include a delicious red and white blend, both of which we carry at the hop yard. Check our their video on canned wine !
