Guessing he means actual beer cans - not like canning preserves ...

Don't do it! Mason Jars can't handle the pressure!

Just kidding. He meant if he could get someone to put his beer in beer cans.

Can you can your homebrew: Yes. Truthfully, it's a logistically nightmare at the homebrew scale.

A. Buying new empty cans and lids. Personally I have no idea where you would, I did a quick google search and turned up nothing. I know there are plenty of companies that you could buy from, but they probably have a minimum order in the thousands.

B. Storing said cans.

C. Sealing the cans. Hand crack can sealers start at $500, and quickly go up in price. electric units are more. And the fully automated units are tens of thousands. You have to have a pretty thriving nano or micro brewery to really utilize one of those.

So, truthfully, your much better off bottling.
