Four Corners Brewing Co. will hit the friendly retail shelves for the first time this weekend. The brewery in Trinity Groves with the proud rooster painted on its not-so-broad-side has been busy canning all three of its All Day Ales, which will be available in 12-ounce six-packs featuring a new can design with fully removable lids.

The removable lids are the first for Texas craft beer. The design is called "360 End" and is manufactured in Texas via Crown Holdings. The brewery does the pouring and packaging in-house with a Laverne And Shirley-esque line (sans the bottles). The fully opened top allows craft beer drinkers to enjoy the full aroma and flavor of the beers. It also solves the totally annoying problem of a bee getting trapped under the lid.

Four Corners will initially release three beers: Local Buzz, made with locally sourced honey, El Chingón, an IPA with hop machismo, and Block Party Porter.

Locally you can find Four Corners at North Oak Cliff Beer and Wine, Bolsa Mercado, Lonestar Beverages and Parkit Market. Four Corners can also be found at Central Markets, Whole Foods, Kroger, Spec's, Total Wine, H-E-B and Walgreens. Yes, Walgreens.

Look for the beer on shelves beginning March 21 for around $8.99 to $9.99.

Go to Parkit Market. They're good folks over there and it's a locally owned business.

What is the purpose of the giant lid?

@P1Gunter  Same for Lonestar Beverages in Carrollton  - All hail the Beer Cave

@lebowski300  In effect, it turns the can into a valid drinking vessel instead of an aluminum container with a slit. Why not pour it into a glass, you ask? Many places do not allow glass containers. This is now your second best option.

@lebowski300  per the article: " The fully opened top allows craft beer drinkers to enjoy the full aroma and flavor of the beers. It also solves the totally annoying problem of a bee getting trapped under the lid."

@dallas_paul I'm probably too far along in the Howard Hughes phase of my life to be drinking from a can. I now see the points offered in the value of this sort of canning and lid, but my sensibilities can't overcome the uncleanliness, or if you clean your cans then the tactile unpleasantness, of drinking from a can.

@miriwalshe The article's explanation was pointless (and sarcastic), but thanks. I was under the impression the comment section was to discuss on topic but what was *not* in the article.

Seriously, does anyone drink beer from a can anyway? And drinking from a can with an open top seems the stupidest dirtiest splilliest thing ever.

How complicated has it ever been to pour out a beer from a can into a glass that this became a feature?

@miriwalshe  Fair enough. That little gutter around the seal, where the beer dribbles over each sip is where all the bug and rodent footprints are though. Just sayin'

@lebowski300  Granted craft beer does taste better from a glass, there are times when having one isn't an option.  I play sports where drinking is allowed, and I'm not going to bring a glass cup to the fields with me.  However, having the open top can would be ideal, because as the article suggested, you can get the aroma of the beer and not aluminum.  To each his own.
