Not only is the investment in canning equipment greater, but the risk is higher since cans are purchased in bulk pre-printed. If the beer is mediocre and does not sell then it is more difficult to back out/change contents vs. bottling which uses simple, printed labels.

Though I like the modern, lined cans for craft beer, I agree that it sill needs to be poured into a glass - even a plastic one - to be fully enjoyed.

Colorado and Oskar Blues has lead the craft beer in a can charge in large part because of the active lifestyle of those who live here. Cans, being lightweight and of course unbreakable, are better for backpacking and camping; the outdoors demographic is what supported the OB effort in the first place. There's nothing like getting a buzz on from a couple of Old Chubs at 14,000 feet!

EDIT: "There is nothing like CELEBRATING the summit at 14,000 feet than with a can of Old Chub." Don't want anyone to get the wrong impression here.

This is turning into a "SHOW US YOUR CANS" thread. That would be awesome, but probably end up in the boneyard.

I had no idea they canned. One of my favorite beers. I usually ALWAYS have a Moose Drool clone on tap. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for some.

Another great on is Santa Fe's Freestyle. If you can't tell, I'm a big canned beer junkie. Even before I got into good beer (or rather before I had access to good beer growing up in Nebraska) I was one of the few(read: two) people in the bar drinking out of a can, so this whole quality canned beer revolution has me stoked. Plus, I like to hike a lot, so the option of throwing a few cans in the daypack versus bottles is right up my alley.
