This Day in History - First Canned Beer

Although I'm not really a history enthusiast I did find this post over on Wired to be particularly delightful today.

It's a wonderful thing really, canned beer. Few realize that it can commonly be more environmentally friendly than glass, it keeps out all the light (beer's true enemy) and is cheaper for a brewery to produce. With some very awesome breweries in Colorado and Oregon paving the way and getting rid of the stigma of canned beer (thanks bud...) I think we have a bright future of cheaper craft beer and more quality control just around the corner. 

Seriously people, it doesn't taste different, the metal is non-reactive. Plus, what do you think your beer is brewed in at the brewery, glass?!
