West Sixth Brewing Co., a new Lexington craft brewery announced in recent months, said this week that it plans to can, rather than bottle, the beers it produces.
"There's been a stigma, an unfair stigma, against cans in the past that they're not as good for the beer and that it's not as high quality a product," said Ben Self, one of the founders of the company. "But we're seeing that's not the case."
Self said the company decided on cans because they're more portable than bottles, easier to recycle and can keep the beer fresher longer.
"It's so much better for the beer in preventing air and light into the container," he said. "It's a really superior container."
