Imagine finding David Chang's world-class cooking in a food truck parked at your campsite or tailgate party, and you’ll see the allure of craft beer in cans: truly excellent gastronomical goodness anywhere you want it.

Now imagine only being able to eat Chang’s steamed Cantonese pork buns with a clothespin on your nose, and you’ll understand the shortcoming of craft beers in cans – the small opening on the lid robs your senses of the beer’s aroma, a major component of its flavor.

Its a pretty cool idea but I just dont really care for it.

First off, its a can. I always noticed a difference in taste when I drink a beer from a can and a beer from a bottle. For that reason I avoid cans....unless its a regular domestic beer.

and second, might as well pour it in a glass, because if it spills its going everywhere. Atleast with a bottle or traditional can theres some sort of regulation of flow.

One good thing is though, you can drink it and you wont get the "air surge" that bottles and normal cans get.

One of the reasons that craft beer brewers are rushing to get their beers into cans is that they have been proven in extensive blind taste tests to preserve fresh taste longer than bottles do. And they pack more compactly, chill faster, are unbreakable, etc.

The one think you don't want to do with a quality beer, if you can avoid it, is to drink it from the package. Pour it into a glass for best experience.

That's what i was thinking, I'll just bring a glass with me. I am annoying at parties, because I always ask for a glass for my beer. I rarely drink beer (any beer) out of bottles or cans anymore, unless I am desperate.

Option 1: glass
Option 2: cup
Option 3: package
Option 4: Don't drink

I can't wait to slice my finger open and open a law suit because of poor labeling.
