But the president is probably born in Kenya so...However, thanks to many pioneering craft brewers around the country, and even several here in Arizona, that stigma is changing. Big, flavorful beer does belong in a can and people are starting to realize that just because it is packaged the same as some mega-brew you'd find at a convenience store it sure doesn't taste that way. And as far as tasting like the can, it's not true. The patented (and secret) process for lining modern cans makes it virtually impossible to extract any flavor from the aluminum.
but who wants to pack out bottles when you can crush a can? In my experience, the craft beers I've tried from a can don't taste like metal at all. But, of course, my generation grew up on better beer to begin with and isn't automatically haunted by memories of Coors and Budweiser.kingsnake wrote:Look at the source and why they say it. I bet bottles are more expensive, thus an economic incentive to pimp cans ... ;)
well, it was either Obama born in Kenya or McCain born in Panama... :STP:chumley wrote:But the president is probably born in Kenya so...
we'll be holding our "Can Kicks Glass" Hop Knot Taste Test this Tuesday, May 17th from 5pm until 7pm (or as long as our short run of cans hold out), a full 4 days before the official release! Similar to the legendary "Pepsi Challenge" from back when the movie Meatballs actually came out, this taste test will be comprised of the subjects given a sample of Hop Knot poured from a can, bottle and on draft to see if you really can tell the difference. Seeing as we've been touting the advancements in "can technology" as well as the environmental benefits that come from canning for years, we figured that the best way to prove it is via taste test. This event will be free
this assertion is proven time and again. for what it's worth, no self respecting brewer would put something like Modus in a can if it diluted or changed the taste. these people and their fans care way too much about quality to make such critical errors.survivalhike wrote: If two beers were poured into pint glasses, one from a can, and one from a bottle, no one would be able to tell you the difference.
This is... interesting... maybe. Could be pretty cool.chumley wrote:Somebody actually did this. It's approved by the US Bureau of Alcohol (and other stuff), and will be on sale this fall.
It's powdered alcohol.

It seems that the product is somehow straight alcohol, with flavors added to the powder to make it taste like a familiar cocktail. I wonder if they can make one in beer-flavor?
1800? 1800? All of the cacti were laughing and crying at the same time. This is not a complete insult to cacti, but they would appreciate better. Save up and spend the few extra bucks for Herradura Anejo. Well worth the few extra bucks. It's actually cheaper at Costco than 1800 is at that little liquor store on 89 north out of Flagstaff. I speak from experience. Don't make the agave cry. And stay thirsty my friend.Kwai Chang wrote:A small bottle of 1800 worked fine for me last week!!!
