Bottles vs. Cans

I came across an interesting article for beer drinkers/lovers. Last month The Boston Globe ran an article about the great beer debate – bottles vs. cans. Apparently Jim Koch (of Sam Adams fame) said that canned beer more or less sucked.

I have always liked bottled beer, but I have to admit that I am not sure that I could tell the difference between my favorite brands in a taste test. I guess I need to learn to save money and go with cans, which is precisely what I did tonight when I picked up a 12-pack of Budweiser Select – the can 12-pack was several dollars cheaper than the 12-pack of bottles. I have been curious about Select, but to be honest it is nothing to write home about. Bud Select is more or less beer flavored water; sort of like Natural Light with a little more beer flavor.
