Draft comes from big cans, right?

I like bottles. I can't figure out how to cap used cans.

I really love the growing trend of canned craft brew. Lighter, better light protection, and cheaper to distribute. I have been trying to buy and support any I can find. Hope more adopt it. It might take a little time as old equip is replaced, but a new brewer just coming into the game I say it is a must.

i like how breweries are releasing cans as 16 oz too. 22 oz is a bit much and 12 oz is a joke. not really, but i really like pint cans.

much easier to carry in a bag when i'm riding my bike too compared to bottles

I don't know how cans can be cheaper. Disposable container vs having to just buy bottle caps. Don't know where you can find equipment for it but the only people I have heard use them were having to order at a minimum 4-5yrs worth and the can sealer was pricey too.

Don't much matter to me - is it wet, I can drink it!
