No.  The answer is no.

farkin' A right! Especially in the summertime. You can't take bottles anywhere near pools and lakes.

Cans leave behind a metallic aftertaste. Unless you're coating the inside of these cans with gold, I don't want this.

I've enjoyed craft brews that have been poured from cans, but you can definitely taste the difference.

I don't care.  I don't drink beer.


/Was it something I said?

It's not metal you're tasting; it's BPA.  The inside of all beverage cans is coated with it.

Yes.  I actually prefer beer in cans.  Well I actually prefer beer in my belly but I haven't yet figured out how to eliminate the middlecan.

Meh.. call me when I can get beer in a box... like my wine.
 
2013-01-28 05:06:26 PM
Do I want my craft beer in the can?

No, I'll just have it right here.

I may come as a shock, but many places where lots of people hand out without shoes look poorly upon the prospect of having broken shards of sharp glass strewn about. Then then either place local ordinances or private property rules dealing with that issue.

And a lot places don't. That's what I was getting at - trying to forbid bottles at lakes around here would be a massive exercise in futility.

Although the nearest swimming pool is about forty miles away.

Chalk up another vote for cans, because you can't guarantee the presence of convenient trash receptacles at a lake.

If the costs work out for the volumes you plan to brew and ship, I think the market's slowly becoming aware that it's possible to serve beer in a can without compromising quality. The operative word there is "slowly." Whatever you decide, good luck!

I love the beers from 21st amendment brewery. It's all in cans. I bike commute, so the cut in weight over bottles is great. And as mentioned above, it's more convenient for beach going. Good luck to your friend, subby.

I've probably had 60% of the craft brews that are available in cans and none of them had any off-tastes. I've even done side-by-side comparisons at the "Canned Beer fest" in Portland. NO differences, zero, zip.
 
2013-01-28 06:59:17 PM
I prefer ingesting craft beer orally. In the can just sounds dumb...

/seriously, the "take it to the beach" argument wins for me

The answer is yes, yes you do.

Cans are better in blind tests iirc.

I wish I liked those. But I reach for the Kona every time.

I prefer bottles in the summertime mostly cause I don't like drinking bees. I can't see them if they're in a can.

At home sure I drink out of bottles almost 100% of the time but the beach, some parks and the races require cans.

Bisphenol A? In my craft beer?
 
2013-01-29 11:29:52 AM
For storage, skunk prevention, transport and size, I say yes.
 
2013-01-29 11:56:48 AM
Seems to me that cans preserve carbonation better in my experience with soda, but I don't have any solid evidence behind that.
