You are correct. The only down side to SA cans is they are more expensive than the bottles but only by a few dollars per 12

Where I was they were the same price. I would love to see them do a 6 & 6 with Boston Lager and Summer Ale

Spotted my first cans last weekend. Did a serious double take when I saw them. The wife of all people said "yeah, I heard they were going to do that". I had no idea, it was a proud moment. SWMBO is up on the latest beer going ons.

She appreciates getting it in the can from time to time.

I have seen the can here in kansas so i know it should be in the most cities if i get it in my smaller town haha as far as the can shape and design go, sam adams spent a million dollars "re-creating" the can. It is supposed to have a larger drink hole that is centered to allow more aroma when drinking (but who drinks from the can?) and a larger lip around the top, not sure what that is for though. It does make sense that they are more expensive becuz of the MILLION dollar design expense but come on, a craft beer should NOT for any reason be more expensive out of a can than the same beer out of the bottle.
