trade policies being considered in Washington could increase the cost of aluminum. American breweries say that means you'll end up paying more for a can of beer.In a letter to the president sent last week, some of the country's most prominent breweries, soda companies, and aluminum can manufacturers said they are worried about new tariffs on aluminum imports reportedly being considered by the White House.

Bottled beer tastes much better than canned.

Actually a rumor, probably started by people who were used to drinking macro-brews in cans before trying their first micro-brew from a bottle.

Living in the beer capital of the world, I've seen a marked increase in canning by micro-brewers the past few years. One advantage is a can blocks out all sunlight, which is harmful to beer. Yep, that brown bag isn't just to signify your a wino. Also, what material are kegs made from...

My guess would be that's because they cater to people who want to bring their beer to the beach (unless you mean some other city under "beer capital of the world"). And kegs are stainless steel, not aluminum.

Actually illegal to drink at all beaches in SD county, I shit you not. Hasn't stopped us yet though, and we bring bottles more than cans. And yes, I suspected kegs are not aluminum, but when I've heard people talk about that same "metal taste", they don't seem to care what the metal is, or ever consider that kegs are also made of metal.
