Bottle's always seem to taste better, however the truth is that canning is the best way to package beer. It is the only way to keep light from affecting the process and the seal is better allowing less oxidization and break down. With that being said, look for some of the quality craft beers available in cans for your recreational rounds. Oskar Blue's in Lyons Colorado makes several good canned beers. Big Sky brewing in Montana are the maker's of the first Aluma-bottles(the one's Bud uses now). There are a number of them around the country.
Bottom line, support your local craft brewery! Cans or bottles, it's beer. What could go wrong?
I'm right there with you bro. Corked bottles allow "breathing", botlle conditioned brews allow for yeast settlement and furthur conditioning (don't drink the yeast!!!!) and bottles that aren't twist offs can be reused for home brewing.
Tap can be good, but there are two added factors. Taps take C02 or whatever gas they choose. You also have the pleasure of consuming the residue of sanitizer that sits in the fancy little sinks behind the bar all night. If you continue to get a new glass all night the amount of it you consume builds. The sanitizer can can give adverse reactions like headaches, abdominal cramping, and digestive nightmares if.....only if your body is sensitive. That's why you always now that one person who will never drink draft at a bar, only botlled.
Cans do not hold a candle to bottles unless you are on the course (where permiitted : ) ) I have seen too many courses with broken glass. i'm not a fan. There is a certain pleasure that comes from walking up to a tee, checking wind, and taking a lil' sip after sinking a 60 footer.
Illumina TTi, i don't know if you were looking for a simple answer or not, BUT I LOVE TALKIN BEER!!!! Good topic man!
