If I looked in a cooler and saw my favorite craft beer in a can, I'd just look further. Glass for me, thank you.
Why? Not trying to prod, I'm genuinely interested, as I'm trying to figure out whether to go bottles or cans right now. I slide between the two about once every two weeks.
When my tongue hits the edge of that can, all I taste is aluminum. Yes, I can pour it onto a glass and assuming the can is lined, then it won't be too bad, but I can still taste it. However, I've now ruined the convenience of having packaged beer.
OTOH if you are back packing in 8+ miles and you get there and want a beer it sure does become a convenience to actually be able to have one. No way I would ever pack in glass, but cans I do all the time.
That said, I still believe there is a prestige factor that is lost in cans. And bottle openers can be b****in' cool. And opening a corked belgian style bottle is a ritual I always enjoy.
yin and yang all around I guess.
