I blog primarily over at "geosciblog" (http://geosciblog.blogspot.com), I am doing this one for fun. It is inspired by 30+ years of beer can collecting and having tried more than 3,000 different American beers during that time. “. . . And beer was drunk with reverence, as it ought to be.” — G. K.

An Interview with BCCA Prez, Pat Cornils...

is presented on the Craft Cans website. Of note, since 2006, each winner of the BCCA U.S. Can-of-the-Year has been a craft can, i.e., not from long-established American brewers.

According to the Craft Cans website, on their database, there have been 339 different brands produced by 126 U.S. breweries. By some definitions, long-established regional brewers, e.g., Spoetzl, Saranac (F.X. Matt), and Stevens Point. This is not the time or place to argue this point, as it serves no useful purpose, however if a friend asks about it, you can politely inform them of the "seniority of these brewers".
