I hate beer in cans...the aluminum changes the flavor...but with certain types of beer it definitely is better. There's no reason for any beer to come in a bottle that isn't brown anymore. Heineken does it because of marketing, but the majority of bottled Heinekens I've had have been skunky.

When it comes down to it...if I have a choice between Moose Drool in a bottle or Moose Drool in a can (Big Sky was early on the microbrewery adding a canning line bandwagon a couple years ago...they only can Moose Drool, Scape Goat Pale Ale, and their IPA) I'm going with the bottle every single time unless it's for something like camping/fishing.

Still nothing beats a good beer on tap. Guinness is, far and away, my favorite of the macros...but even though they've spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to figure out how to retain that flavor and consistency it just never tastes that good in a bottle or a can. On tap that stuff is ****ing glorious.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
