Ray Isle (@islewine on Twitter) is Food & Wine's executive wine editor. We trust his every cork, pop and decant - and the man can sniff out a bargain to boot. Take it away, Ray.

It’s very easy to imagine some beer-drinking alien from the planet Xorx arriving on Earth and saying, “Let me get this straight. You have 1,716 independent small brewers in your ‘country’ - whatever that is - and until now they never thought of putting their beer in cans? Hmmm. You really are lesser beings, aren’t you? I shall now vaporize your cities.”

Thankfully, the craft brewers of America are finally relenting on this bottle-only approach to beer, which (a) will save us all from early vaporization, and (b) will allow people like me to drink their beer at the beach.
