Beer’s About to Run Out Because We Can’t Get Enough Aluminum Cans

“The US is running low on aluminum cans, Brewbound recently reported.

The tight supply is likely because of a combination of trends that have been bubbling up in the past few months.

For one, thanks to coronavirus-related precautions, beer that usually would have been consumed on-premise at bars, restaurants, and breweries is now being packaged to be drunk at home.

And second, canned hard seltzers and wines are having a major moment, with drinks like Mark Anthony Brands’ White Claw and Boston Beer Co.’s Truly Hard Seltzer leading the charge.” [Business Insider]

Oh great, first we couldn’t find toilet paper, now we can’t get smashed. Can’t wait to watch the videos of hoarders fighing over beer at Costco.
