A lot of brewers are trying to get into canning. A South Carolina brewery called Westbrook has been distributing some of their beers in cans since they started. Word is that Sierra Nevada is going to be canning beers at their new North Carolina brewing and distribution center.

Canning is definitely a good approach for IPAs and other styles where light contamination can affect the taste of the beer. Definitely not as important for darker beers such as stouts and porters (other than if you want to use a nitro widget which in my experience works a lot better with cans than bottles).
