Can You See the Difference? (Bad Pun Intended)

By Kati Spayde

If you have been in the store recently you may have noticed the influx of canned beer. Siciliano's, along with the beer industry as a whole, is moving beer to cans whenever available. Cans are better for many reasons:

    • They are better at keeping light and oxygen away from the beer, both of which harm beer's flavor
    • They weigh less, meaning a smaller carbon footprint resulting from shipping beer from the brewery
    • Cans are 100% recyclable, you can make new cans from all those old cans
    • Beer cans are more beach, river and festival friendly
For Siciliano's, it's all about the real estate. Every year more breweries start packaging and distributing beer, but sadly our store is not getting any bigger. Cans can be stacked, which allows us to fit two cases of cans in the space taken up by one case of bottles.

So please, give cans a chance. They're just little, tiny kegs!

The selection of canned beer grows everyday at Siciliano's
