Why are breweries switching to cans?

Beer in bottles is not uncommon. However, craft brewers have leaned towards cans for its superiority as a storage vessel. Cans are less fragile, easier to stack and have a higher recycling rate than glass bottles.

Why do craft beers come in cans?

For beer quality, cans are better because the liquid isn't exposed to light that can penetrate bottles — even the brown ones — and the lid is a more durable seal than a cap. For brewers, cans weigh less, reducing shipping costs, and they are easier to stack and store at the brewhouse and retail stores.
