Maui Coconut Porter and Bikini Blonde are both amazing canned beers. I like the Caldera beers, I think Old Chub is good, Ten Fidy is ok, and Gubna is not great, but I appreciate the packaging. As long as the beer is poured from the can into a glass.

But when it comes to cans vs bottles, bottles wins hands down from an environmental impact perspective. Both are recyclable and both commonly are recycled. But glass bottles are much cheaper to produce than aluminum cans when you consider the entire manufacturing process.
Yes..............BUT. Suddenly, we have no place to recycle bottles. At least in our area, the cost of recycling glass became prohibitive for any of our facilities. No one that I know of (within 100 miles) will take any glass of any type.

I've only had the pork slap, but can't wait to try the rest. I also bought a bottle of Sierra Nevada homegrown estate ale. THAT beer is awesome.

I don't mind beer from a can provided it's served in a glass. Having said that, if I really want a beer, a can is fine. I just prefer a glass or a bottle.

well, to be fair, I don't drink out of bottles either. You just can't get everything out of a beer if it is in its shipping container.

We just received a beer trade from a guy in MN...



There's a lot of good beer in cans.

I've never had it in a can but Newcastle on tap or even in a bottle is about my favorite commercial beer. I love the stuff.

Gotta love the BMC commercial.

An oldie but a goodie.
