|In the past, I've been told that a rule of thumb is that beer bottles cost three times what the contents cost. Could be more in Germany, where most are recycleable. The founder of a major regional brewer in Minnesota told me a couple of years ago that there were only two bottle suppliers remaining (aquisitions?) in the USA. That was one of his reasons for installing a canning line. I have heard very recently that aluminum cans are very short supply, due to the shift from tap sales to off sale..|
I believe that modern cans preserve beer noticeably better than bottles. They are all now plastic-lined, so the beer never contacts the metal. Plus no light issues. Plus more compact. Plus quicker to cool.
