Cans VS Bottles

Cans VS Bottles


Canettes


We believe cans are the future and we would like to explain you what are the advantages of cans instead of bottles


sustainability


#1 Sustainability

• Cans use 90% less energy for recycling 
• Aluminum made from recycled source use 95% less energy than primary material
• Our Cans contain an average of 68% recycled aluminum 
• Cans are lighter, so it requires less energy and packaging for transportation. 
  
The lower carbon footprint from the production, recycling and transportation of aluminum cans makes them the clear packaging of choice for our brewery. 


Quality check


#2 Quality

• When beer is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, it leads to oxidization and an unpleasant “skunky” flavor in the beer. Glass bottles block out some light, but not all. Cans prevent all light from reaching the beer inside.

• Cans create a better airtight seal than beer bottles. During the canning process, the aluminum container is completely sealed using a double operation seal, which prevents additional oxygen from reaching the beer until someone opens the can
  
Since cans limit exposure to both light and oxygen to a greater extent than bottles, they keep the beer inside fresh and flavorful for longer. This is especially important in juicy, hoppy IPA's 


 #3 Our Two cents:



• Cans are lighter, more compact and don’t break like glass bottles. That means that you can pack a few extra crispy lagers, hoppy pale ales or fruity sours into your gear bag for that next bike ride, hike or BASE jump without having to worry about bringing back heavy, empty bottles. Simply crush your cans into a neat little hockey puck and bring them to the closest recycling point. Better still, you can rest assured that you won’t be covered in broken glass and tears if you drop your bag on your next adventure. 
 
Cans are the perfect tools for exploration. They are better for the environment, better for your beer and better for your back.

#4 For the conspiracy theorists : 
 
“Beer tastes better out of a glass bottle"

Like many people, you might believe beer tastes better out of a bottle. However, blind taste tests have failed to show a consistent or significant difference in preference for bottled over canned beer.

“Beer from a can tastes ’tinny’ or ‘metallic" 
 
All beer cans are lined with a coating that protects the beer inside. In fact, it is far more likely to get a metallic flavor from a bottle than it is from a can, as the crown corks on bottles can rust if improperly stored. If a canned beer tastes metallic, it is invariably a problem with the beer and not the package.
