Sam Adams backtracks on no-can pledge -- and that's a good thing
Boston Beer Co., one of the oldest -- and largest -- craft beer brands in America, announced this week that it would begin canning its signature Samuel Adams Boston Lager. The amber lager will be available in specially designed "Sam Cans" this summer, and the move is a change in direction for the craft giant that declared in 2005's "Craft Beer Bill of Rights" that "Beer shall be offered in bottles, not cans, so that no brew is jeopardized with the taste of metal."
