If you’ve been keeping tabs on booze trends, you may have noticed that canned beer is making a comeback.  While cans have been criticized for adversely affecting the taste of beer, experts say new can technology is changing that.  Well-known brands like Sam Adams, Budweiser, Miller and Coors are all rolling out new cans with features designed to improve the drinking experience, like removable lids, punch-top cans, vented mouths and extended lips.  Gimmicks aside, cans have one major advantage over glass bottles- they block out oxygen and light, preserving beer’s freshness.
