The Beer Sommelier’s Matt Simpson says if you want a well-hopped beer, and it’s available in a can, then get the can. If you want to bring your beer outside or engage in an activity where bottles can break, choose a can as well.

The Beer Chicks’ Hallie Beaune, agrees, saying, “If you’re going to the beach, or hiking, or camping, or going to a bluegrass festival – certainly in those situations a can is great…if you like to stop mid-hike and have a beer, which is the way I like to hike.”
