Are canned beers the new craze? I’m sure this has been going on for awhile but it seems like most of the micro brews I saw were in cans. Probably more economical. Also curious, do a lot of these micro breweries subcontract manufacturing out to different, bigger companies? Seems likely since I imagine the startup costs alone would prevent most from having a mega facility to make beer
Canning is definitely on the rise in a big way.  There is huge consumer demand for cans presently.  Cans also present a number of quality benefits, mainly they let in zero light (even brown/amber glass lets in a bit) and they have more airtight seals than bottles with crown caps (reducing oxygen exposure over time).  The cans are often more economical, but it's highly dependent on supply chain.

There are some breweries/brands that contract out production to larger facilities, but the majority self produce.  Startup costs are high, but you definitely don't need a "mega facility" to produce beer.  Some amazing stuff gets produced in some pretty humble/surprisingly small places.

I had the BBA version with added almond of this a couple of days ago... This is less bonkers, but as balanced, and almost as delicious... Stellar work by De Molen...

Took a trip to Scratch Brewing today. Literally in the middle of nowhere in Southern Illinois, down a one-lane gravel road in the middle of the woods. Worth the trip.
