Canned beer is the future of good beer

Whenever you think of good beer that thought is synonymous with being served in a brown bottle. This appears to be changing according to this article at Gizmodo. New canning technology allows microbrewers to can their beers now. It is beginning to take hold and is becoming more common. You may already see more canned micros at the liquor store.

This is a great boon to the boating community. Many lakes prohibit glass bottles and that effectively rules out a lot of people’s favorite beers. This will allow people to safely enjoy their favorite beers on the water without the risk of a broken bottle slicing up your feet.

For many reasons it’s probably not your first choice for bringing it out to the lake. One of the biggest has got to be the price tag, it costs about $760 per bottle.
