Default Canned craft brew.

My question would be will they force carb these? I like to harvest yeast from a few of these places especially Bells. I wonder what kind of effect this will have on that.

What does everyone else think of craft brew in cans?

There's quite a lot of discussions on canned craft brews on here. Including one I started a couple weeks back when Sierra nevada announced they were going to.

It's awesome. There's a lot of places that don't allow glass, so we're often limited in our beer choices then...not so much now.

Sierra Nevada did what?! That's outstanding, wonder if they'll make it out to the East Coast. I am a fan of the craft brew in a can in case that didn't come across. 21st Amendment does some really good stuff.

Surly cans their beers as well- and they are awesome.

I just had a 21st Amendment tonight in a can and it was wonderfully hoppy.

I'm a fan of "getting it in the can"!

Yep after having a ton of different canned crafts I am a fan. They hoppy beers last a lot longer then in the bottle. Plus there is zero light contamination.

Here in Montana we have Kettlehouse and Big Sky selling their beers in cans. It's pretty great for all the outdoorsy stuff most Montanans are into. I remember when I first threw down a 16oz Kettlehouse Doublehaul IPA on a tubing trip in July...just like heaven. Makes 'em a lot easier to pack in or out for hiking or hunting camp, too!

My only concern is I hope they still have some Bells Oberon or Amber in the bottle so I can harvest their yeast. Otherwise I will need to buy a new fridge and start stocking yeast.
