Every one knows cans are more convenient and easier to transport, but what about the taste? This has been a decades long debate. It really comes down to personal preference. Some people think that the can gives beer after taste, especially since we switched to using aluminum cans instead of tin.
As a rule, on beer and ale, the lighter the color, the colder it needs to be. Pale lagers and pilsners need to be between 42º to 45º. Wheat beers and heavier lagers should be 47º-48º. Stouts, lambecs, dark beers, British Ales, and IPAs need to be served at 55º-60º.

Did you know that BEER first came to Canada before we were even officially a nation? That’s right, European settlers actually brought beer to the “area” of North America we now proudly call Canada in the 1600’s.

Another theory about why beer bottles are brown has to do with the glass making process itself. This one has never been proven, but many people say that in past centuries it was much harder to make clear glass but it was to make colored glass. Apparently, crystal clear glass requires processes that were not developed until the industrial age.
Another custom in Japan has to do with the beer itself. All of Japan’s breweries traditionally brew seasonal beers. In fall, for example, they brew a heavier beer with higher alcohol content and advertise it as going well with one pot meals.
