canning is insanely more expensive though. An article that I was reading said that cans have to be ordered in quantities of at least 80,000.

Here's 2 articles that I saved (on this comp)

cans are essentially mini-kegs.. Sealed better and no light can get in... They're easier to dispose of, easier to handle/redeem, and easier to carry.... easier to stack, and can get more of them in the fridge/cooler...

It's all in your head. I had the same mindset until I stumbled across Caldera IPA and Ten Fidy at my local beer store. Try and get the stigma out of your mind and you won't care either.

It might be partially in my head, but I still won't take it in the can.

I've had Guinness in bottles, cans, and on tap... Best is often from a properly cleaned/setup tap. Then from the can, poured into a pint glass. The bottles are good if you're looking to cook with it.

I love the Surly brews, and you can only get them in a can (other than Darkness) or on tap.

I'm psyched. Nothing wrong with canning. Dale's is one of my favorite commercial beers. It will be interesting to do a side by side comparison. Especially with a beer we all know and love.

This is awesome...our neighborhood pool allows alcohol...but only in cans. Guiness is the only thing I've seen in a can recently that I have any interest in drinking, but for some reason it just doesn't sound good on a hot summer day! hah

Only wish the cans were coming out sooner!
