well, here's my thoughts. if i'm in one place and on the east coast (or if i'm on the west coast and I have money to burn) than I buy bottles.
if i'm traveling while drinking then it's cans all the way. way friendlier for moving around.
the east (i'm sorry, i'm refering to ontario when i say east, i know it's not real east, but that's what these damn west coasters seam to think it is, so i'll just go with it) is all about the bottles, the west is more into the cans. i think can's are cheaper to make and stuff so it makes sence that there's more cans and stuff.
but you get more beer in a can anyways, so cans are good.
for the best deal (well, at least at this one cold beer and wine store at willow and broadway) is a 6 pack of pilsner tall cans... works out to like around 9 beers and it's one dollar cheaper than a 8 pack of normal size cans. i'm sorry, i'm way off topic here.
...because I'm better then you

beer is the worst alcohol to backpack with. if ur backpacking, you should def always carry hard liquor than cans of beer. beer takes up way too much space when hiking.
actually, most beer comes in bottles out west since it is microbrews. macrobrews are always cans, easier and cheaper to produce and distribute. if ur tryin to save money, go with shitty cans. if ur a beer drinker who knows his beer, you'll always go w/ bottles since theyre micro and always taste better than macro.
^^right on thanks for the clarification. either way, if ur doin real backpacking in the mountains, or travelling in the boundary waters, beer is way too heavy and space consuming. i also prefer beer to hard liquor, its just better.
if you live in quebec and have a car, and are doing serious drinking, the best deal is to take your car to costco, where you can get 24s of good beers (e.g. sleeman, heiniken ..sp) for less that 24 bucks.
here's everyones best bet:compromise. drink good beer (bottles) until you're somewhat drunk, then crack open shitty cans for the rest of the night, because you cant taste the beer after ur wasted, it all becomes the same.
