Beer technology marches forward: Pittsburgh Brewing Company has developed an aluminum bottle for its flagship Iron City brew.

The pertinent question: Can you count on this metal bottle as a weapon in a bar fight? You sure can’t turn into a stabbing instrument like a glass bottle. Still, better this than one of those dopey plastic bottles.

Recycling-minded beer connoisseurs should rejoice:

Some people say they can taste the difference between beer in cans and bottles.

Lew Bryson, an author of two books on breweries, said those complaints are psychological, since the aluminum is coated. But, he said, there may be a lingering taste when the seal of an aluminum can is broken.

The aluminum bottle could eliminate that, he said.
