4% abv? They still make that stuff?
I'm hoping to bring a batch of \"Waka\" home-brew with me, definitely more than 4%.
As for the comparison between bottles and cans, I don't have any info on hand, but I seem to recall that aluminum is much easier to recycle (looking at the energy involved for melting, etc.) and it's waaaay cleaner to recycle aluminum than it is to make a new can from scratch.
I re-use all my bottles though, so that's the way to go for me.
Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile...
