I read this interesting article
today. Apparently Sam Adams spent a pretty penny to design a can worthy of good beer.
What does Icrontic think? I've always preferred popping a can on a summer day. It's easier to carry a suitcase of cans from the store, easier to store, easier to dispose of (recycle). Can's get cold faster, it's just got this stigma to it, like, if it's in a can, it must be swill... (because often that's the case). Most good beer was packaged bottle only but this is changing.
I've seen what for me is a positive trend to cans. They are just a better way to package beer. Cans don't allow light in, they are lighter, easier to transport, create less waste, not to mention less dangerous. I've seen a few nasty cuts from beer bottles. Flying Dog in Maryland recently started canning a few varieties. It's great, and it tastes just as amazing.
Now that some micro-brew's are canning, will it change the way you drink? Will you role up to your next cookout with a cooler of Boston Beer Company's Summer Ale in cans? If your favorite micro-brew started canning, would you prefer it that way, or still stick with bottles?
