For the most part, people buy beer based on two considerations. First, do they like it? Second, what does it cost? Increasingly though, other considerations are coming into play.

Some beer drinkers will only purchase beer brewed by an independent microbrewery. Others want to buy beer brewed locally. Perhaps the decision is made based on what goes well with a particular meal. Or maybe you want or need to avoid gluten, so only a gluten-free beer will work.

These are all good and valuable considerations. But I’d like to add one more, which is a non-negotiable for me when I buy beer – is the beer in an aluminum can?
