Very simple. If it looks like a food can, then bears know that they can find out with their claws and teeth.
A friend of mine submerged a 6-pack of beer into a stream overnight. The bear came along, fished it out of the stream, and then proceeded to puncture each can with its claws and sample the beverage, allowing the remainder to leak out.
I admit that I once submerged a 12-pack of beer into a small river, but that was mostly to chill the beverage for my friends. Part of the problem is that it takes a pretty big rock to keep everything submerged.
