How do you like your beer?

We are getting ready for the 4th Annual Hudson River Craft Beer Festival on Saturday September 17th at Beacons Riverfront park from 1-5 p.m. and have to ask the question, if you drink beer, do you prefer it in a can or in a bottle?

We asked that question on the show this morning and the majority of people agree that a beer in a bottle taste better but according to a new survey beer is actually better in a can.

The people over at Thrillist did a study that they say proves that beer in a can is better than in a bottle and they gave us 3 reasons why.

1. Cans weigh less, so they're more convenient. To break it down, a six pack of cans weighs about five pounds, compared to a six pack of bottles that weighs about seven and a half pounds.

2. Beer doesn't last as long in a bottle. Brown beer bottles block out 99% of the light. But if they sit on the shelf for a while, that 1% can mess with the taste a little bit. Aluminum cans block out 100% of the light rays which is a good thing.

3. Cans are better for the environment. They're a little easier to recycle. And since they weigh less, they're cheaper to ship and it takes less gas to get them from point A to point B.
