You say that as if there was any other type of history that might be important?   :D

I wish to go on record as having to agree with this.

Actually, the newer cans aren't bad, and many craft brewers such as Oskar Blues, Ska, Santa Fe Brewers, etc. are switching back to cans.

I personally like bottles myself, but it's hard to beat cans for convenience.

Draft beer comes from a big can.

A lot of bottled and canned beer is pasteurized to increase the shelf life.

Most draft beer is not.

You can taste the difference.

Crushing a bottle against your forehead is more painful.  Cans are also much lighter to pack out.

The can vs. bottle debate goes on.

I prefer a draft myself - given the choice

Canned beer is great for backpacking.  A total light and oxygen barrier also makes it the best container for the beer.  I love that so many of the micros are canning.
