Thanks for the article.  I'm sure this has been said, but I need to say it myself.  Homebrewers, you can't re-can a can.  So thank you craft brewers for all those bottles!  I put the money I would have spent buying new bottles into ingredients for more lovely beer.

Yeah, I know that cans are lighter and light-proof.  Glass weights more, transmits some light and sure can crack.  But as one who regularly mountain-bikes heavy homebrew in my backpack to the top of the trail, I say it's worth every ounce (and I mean by weight and volume!).

Keystone Homebrew's booth at NHC had some wines that were canned by one of the mobile bottling lines. You though craft beer in cans was a tough sell...

Hoo boy.  There is still quite the stigma against screw tops.  I can't wait to hear the gnashing of teeth with cans! :P

Cans provide some advantages over bottles, but I'm uncertain of how the consumer really feels about this evolution that is slowly occurring. I really don't have a preference, as long as the beer is fresh, it really doesn't matter to me as the consumer. I'll take it in the bottle or the can...aluminum can that is. ;)
