Battle of the Brews: Can vs. Bottle vs. Tap 


Bottles, Cans, or Taps: Which Brew Reigns Supreme? 

When it comes to enjoying a cold one, beer enthusiasts often find themselves faced with a tough decision: should they crack open a bottle, pop the top on a can, or head to the tap? Each vessel has its own unique advantages and characteristics, making the choice a matter of personal preference. At The Hoppy Brewer, we pride ourselves on offering the biggest selection of all three, including a wide array of imported beers. Let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of each option to help you decide which brew is right for you. 

Canned Beer: Crushing the Competition 

For many beer lovers, cans have shed their once-negative stigma and emerged as a popular choice for enjoying a cold brew. Cans offer several advantages over bottles, including superior protection from light and oxygen, which can degrade the quality of the beer. Plus, cans are lightweight, portable, and virtually unbreakable, making them the perfect choice for outdoor adventures, beach trips, and tailgating parties. At The Hoppy Brewer, we offer a variety of canned beers, from classic lagers to trendy craft brews, ensuring there’s something for everyone to enjoy. 

Bottled Beer: A Classic Choice 

Despite the rise of canned beer, bottles continue to hold a special place in the hearts of many beer aficionados. There’s something timeless and nostalgic about cracking open a cold bottle and hearing the satisfying hiss of carbonation. Bottles also offer the advantage of being easily recyclable and environmentally friendly. Plus, some beer styles, such as Belgian ales and specialty brews, are best enjoyed from a bottle to fully appreciate their complex flavors and aromas. At The Hoppy Brewer, we stock a wide selection of bottled beers, including imported favorites from around the globe. 

On Tap: The Freshest Option 

For the ultimate beer experience, nothing beats a pint poured fresh from the tap. Draft beer is often lauded for its superior taste and freshness, thanks to the lack of light exposure and minimal oxidation. Plus, many breweries offer exclusive or limited-edition beers on tap that can’t be found in bottles or cans, making it a must-try for beer enthusiasts looking for something new and exciting. At The Hoppy Brewer, we boast an impressive selection of beers on tap, with nearly 30 rotating options to choose from. From hoppy IPAs to rich stouts and refreshing lagers, there’s something for every palate to enjoy.
