trade policies being considered in Washington could increase the cost of aluminum.

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...
