I for one think that the whole craft beer canning thing is great. Cans are so much more versatile than bottles and the beer still tastes the same in my opinion. It made me start to think that eventually all craft beers might be canned.

I prefer draught over bottles and bottles over cans. That's just my opinion.

Bottles of course as they can be re-used. Also the 5 litre cans, but I don't see much variety in them. But I do like some canned beer for backpacking.

Draft first of course. But, I don't really care if the brew is in a can or a bottle. It's going into a glass anyway.

Yep. Either/or. Don't care.

I really like Surly in cans, and the beer stays really fresh. But I like bottles, too, so it doesn't really matter all that much to me.

Bottles over cans for me, hygene for me is a major factor. Also seems unless you have a koozie a can of beer gets warmer faster.

Draft > Can > Bottle. Cans preserve the beer better, longer.

Pretty much. Unless I need bottles.
