Thanks to innovations and a shift in attitudes, more craft beer makers offer non-bottle options.
Craft beer maker Harpoon has installed a custom-made production line that can produce 250 cans a minute at its South Boston brewery.
Hundreds of cans, their tops not yet in place, move into a chamber that cleans, fills, and closes them.
Cases of cans are ready to be prepared for shipping.
