Ooooh! That brings up a good point. Why does bottled beer always taste better than canned? Or is it just me?

Drat! I just got rid of my copy of "Beer for Dummies," which covered that very topic. Good book, though, a must-mention for the FAQ...

IIRC, it has to do with the fact that glass doesn't really react with anything, nor does it allow anything in/out. (Except light! Keep beer in the dark!)

Some of the British imports have "widgets" which nitrogenate the beer only after the can is opened, giving the beer a really nice "draft" texture. Its been my experience, however, most people even in Britain tend to open the can and pour before allowing the widget to work fully.

OTOH, who ever read the directions on the side of a beer can?
