At Liquor World in Porter Square, where the shopping crowd leans heavily toward students and young professionals, it’s not surprising that craft beers are in increasingly high demand this summer. What is surprising is that canned craft beers are flying off the shelves in record numbers.
“The 12-packs of cans are selling twice as quickly as bottles,” says the store’s beer buyer, Todd Perry. “Last summer, they sold well, but there weren’t as many canned varieties on the market in Massachusetts. This summer, it’s much more pronounced.”
