If you do choose to bring beers along though, the clear choice for lightweight transportation is a can. We’ve written about this before, in our article “Beers in the Backpack”, so check that out for a further read (and some suggested local brews!). Cans are becoming more popular in the craft beer world--in the fall of 2013, we had to search a few specialty stores to stir up our beer suggestions. Now though, cans have found a space on the shelf right next to their bottled brothers.
I went a little research happy, including watching this informative YouTube video, which I will admit is a smidge long.
Readers, we love hearing from you. What are your thoughts on conservation in the craft beer world? Are you embracing canned craft beer, stowing them in backpacks to enjoy in the great outdoors? Would you be willing to pay just a little more for a beer if it meant that the packaging could get thrown into the compost bin?
No beer of the week unfortunately-- I’m on antibiotics. Let’s share a pint together next week when I’m right as rain once more.
