Well...I know I did. Steve and I started having a conversation about this a couple of weeks ago. It came about because when we went to North Carolina for New Year's we brought cans of Yuengling. Normally we would buy bottles, but the cans were obviously easier to transport. Before that weekend I guarantee you I hadn't had a can of beer since Memorial Day weekend 2010 (I was at a NASCAR race, so sue me).

All that said, though, in recent years we've been drinking so much craft beer that I've learned how much better a draft beer can be than a bottle. Because it's not exposed to oxygen, for one, and also...you never know how old that six-pack sitting on the shelf of your grocery store is. Recently I was searching out some Duck Rabbit Milk Stout for a friend from Boston (you can't get it up there) and I had to go to numerous stores before I found one that actually carried the stuff and could tell me that it wasn't six months old or more! And when it came down to it, the bottled version was nowhere near as amazing as the draft of Duck Rabbit Milk Stout that I had at a beer festival in Asheville, North Carolina last year.
