Beervana Podcast, Episode 47: Bottles and Cans at Hopworks Urban Brewery
Jeff Alworth and Patrick Emerson visit Hopworks Urban Brewery in Portland, Oregon, to learn about the packaging side of craft beer. Hopworks has both a canning line and a bottling line, and they discuss the advantages and disadvantages of both and go deep into the details of canning–increasingly the preferred package type for many small breweries.
