"Baxter Brewing founder and president Luke Livingston said cans are good for the beer, the environment and consumers, because they’re easy to take to places like camping trips and golf outings. "
Wrong. Canned beer is not good for consumers because metal cans are lined with a resin that contains BPA (bisphenol A) which is now recognized as a toxin. Also, I fail to see how encouraging people to take their microbrew cans on camping trips is good for the environment.

remember back in the day when milk came in glass jugs that were returned to the producer who cleaned them and refiled them and on and on?
that was recycling!
and a variety that used way less labor and energy as the new way!
mean anything to anyone?

This would be safer for Alex and Charlie also, when they fall down they won't cut themselves!

Are you a southern Baptist Minister????
If it's in a can,(soup, fruit, veggies infant formula and dog food) that can is lined with BPA and can also be found in that plastic bottle of water you drink....
The FDA as in United States says it's bad for us, but regulatory agencies in Europe find the risk minimal and they have stiffer standards than the US... They have banned its use for anything used to package infant foods or drink... They find no harmful effects in adults and it is flushed through the body within 24 hours.... So at the rate and quantity I consume canned beer vs the trips to the john, I would estimate its out of my system within 30 minutes.....
Now if you really wanna panic, those cash register receipts you get from Wally Mart and even the ATM are loaded with BPA...
Why encourage taking cans of beer on a camping trip?????
It's called being "A Happy Camper" dumb sss!!!!!!!!!!
