Beer from a bottle or aluminum can has about the same environmental
costs under current usage.

Glass would be better if we reused, rather than recycled, especially
if it didn't have to be shipped over long distances (transport weight
of glass eats into energy savings).  Aluminum can recycling is
widespread, more so than glass, and as such makes the use of cans have
some advantages.  However the mining of bauxite to provide 60% of
aluminum in cans (40% is from recycle) is extremely tough on the
environment as is the extraction process.

Hands down, a keg is the most efficient way to drink your beer.
