I’m still getting used to the idea of craft beers in aluminum cans – I still suffer from the illogical idea that only fizzy yellow beers come in cans, but that’s slowly changing.
Beer wrapped in aluminum makes a lot of sense. More compact, easier and less weight to ship, no sunlight gets in to skunkify…
Not to mention cans are allowed in many places that bottles are not. Maybe the beach, lake, golf course…that type of thing.
Considering all this, I think we’ll see more and more craft brewers switching to cans, and as that happens I think people like me will finally get over it.
The beer of focus today is Longboard Lager, which I happened to review in bottle-form some time ago so I’m not going to rehash it again. I really enjoyed this beer, (both times) and it was one of the first yellow beers helping me overcome another phobia I have regarding yellow beers!
I’ll just say that I didn’t taste any aluminum flavors and the beer was as good as if it were poured from a glass bottle. No problems whatsoever.
So, another win for good beers in cans.
