Why is america so big on canned beer?

I can understand for standard/avergae tasting mass produced piss - but when craft brewers use cans? wtf??

It seems like kind of a new thing, actually. I'm not sure what's behind it, though.

canning blocks out all light and is airtight, so beer stays fresher longer. with IPA's freshness is especially important and so i've noticed more IPA's being canned than other styles. a 3 month old can of Sierra Nevada Torpedo would still probably taste fresher than a 3 month old bottle. lots of IPA aficionados try to get them as fresh as possible, like within a couple weeks (even days) of brewing, since the hops "fade off" with time as i see it put frequently.

Cans are also far lighter than bottles, which cuts down on shipping costs. A good beer tastes as good from a glass regardless if it was poured from a bottle or can.

Hmm, makes sense. I noticed that most of these canned brews are high dollar IPAs, but I wasn't sure why. Not a big IPA fan, personally, so I never really looked into it.

sierra nevada going to cans was fucking great. i mean yeah with IPAs you should pour it in a glass whether or not it comes from a bottle/can. anyone who doesn't know this can seriously figure it out just by taking a sip of the beer from the can/bottle and then pour it into a glass. this is something I wonder sometimes about people who don't care for any IPAs at all... did they drink it from can/bottle? prices are a bit lower on SN can stuff too sometimes. Also, love that 4 pack of 16 oz torpedo, that is a just a cube of happiness right there.

This stuff is so delicious. Can't wait for the Lagunitas Chicago brewery to open later this year so I can have some of their beers straight from the tap.

is this bullshit? i think this is bullshit.

who the hell can brew a beer in three days? even an ipa still needs at least a month from the hops being boiled in the wort before it is drinkable.

I understand the light thing, but the aluminium of the can will totally fuck up any crispness that the beer has anyway
