then you have to worry about corks right? I mean usually you can tell, but allot of 22's seem to have corks.

In the bigger picture, twist-off caps make sense for a general beer-drinking population because you don't need any tools (or knowledge of special tricks) to drink the beer. Instant access for the masses.

I'm really surprised more breweries don't use twist-off caps. A matter of street cred, I guess.

Kind of like how a screw-capped bottle preserves wine as well as a corked bottle, but only the cheapest and/or renegade brands use screw-tops, because corks have some kind of magical value-added cachet.

It's my understanding that screw caps are better for wine than cork. Easier, more economical, more reliable, and you don't need to strip a 7-year-old tree. Also, no more "corked" wine. But, yeah, tradition dies hard, especially in the wine world where a $3 bottle could get a 97 just because the taster thought it was a $60 bottle.

9-12 years
but you can strip the same tree over and over again every 9-12 years.

Whatever, I was pretty close for having only heard the figure quoted once a couple of years ago.

Open a screw-top wine bottle in front of your (hopefully-soon-to-be) SWMBO and watch her turn into a SWJDMATTC (She who just dumped my a$$ to the curb).
