Cans are good.  Cheap, lightweight, allowed in parks, don't allow in hop-destroying light, and won't break if you drop 'em.

They have a bad reputation from back in the olden days.  That's hard for some customers to get past - especially if they insist on not using a glass.

There is also a controversy about BPA linings.

Ugh. Nothing worse than a beer that's been skunked from sitting in the light. Got a 6 pack last night, opened the first one and smelled skunk immediately.

That's all I have, just short tale of woe.

Beer is good.  I like beer.  But I like whiskey better.  You can keep your silly cans.

My only issue with cans is getting the pour proper, which I imagine comes partly from my familiarity with bottles but also is likely the fault of the mouth of the can not being flush against the wall. Topless style cans (and who doesn't love such an obvious joke as topless cans...) seem a good solution. Anymore, no metallic taste is found, and the costs have begun to decline rapidly with mobile canning operations and smaller technology. Oskar Blues and Cigar City are two great breweries which are offering much in cans.

Bottles just feel more satisfying to me. I am still biased against the metallic taste of old cans, but bottles are right to me.

/Also, beer doesn't get skunked if you drink it fast enough

I've had canned beer that i've also had in the bottle and the difference in taste is pretty astounding. much like with soda - that metallic taste really infiltrates into the beer and it is not of the good way. I don't get the appeal. but that's just me.

i'm sure there's some frat somewhere - that did it drinking 3% ABV Natural Light.

any other beer and you' be tanked by time you got into the teens (or twenties if you have really high tolerance).

/round here we call it Nasty Light.

What beer did you have? I would reckon part of this is mere expectation of metallic taste because the newer cans give off no flavors.

bullshiat, the only time beer touches the metal of the can is when the tab is popped and you pour.  Otherwise it is only touching the flavor-less lining of the can.

I don't like to drink from a glass, so I'll stick with bottles.

FTA_ "Milwaukee Beer Week"

Yea, I had a friend that lived in Milwaukee for awhile.

Every week is beer week. He thought he knew how to drink, until he tried to keep up with you midwest alkies.
