Default New Beer Can

I was in Brazil a few weeks ago and thought this new pull off top was pretty cool. You could actually smell the beer when you drink it. Sorry for the big pic I should have downloaded a smaller one.

Oh great . we can now lookforward to visiting the beach and steping on the pop-top in the sand. I don't miss those old days.

Lawyers in the US will have a ball with those - actually they won't get a chance. The beer producers know our sum population is to stupid and weak to be allowed such technology.

I love it!

I really do hate drinking through the pull tab. For me it's like drinking through a straw and you can't over look the health issues. So after I crack a can of beer or God forbid a pop I'll swing the tab around 180° and try and pull it off. Generally it doesn't pop off, insteads rips half the top off the can; which I am fine with.

So me personally I would gladly welcome the new style beer can with open arms.....but I see what you guys are talking about with liter.

Like Thubert said, you only do that after 4 beers.

Who is it the new Miller Lite can that you can punch a hole in the top to help drink it better?? Good idea there!

I don't drink beer but love the idea from a drinking point of view, but yes they'd be all over the streets and beaches in no time at all. Sorry beer drinkers, you'll have to fly to Brazil for yours, but while your there they have the best Rodizio you could imagine!

Yes, you can't drink beer with rodizio though. We had a few bottles of a very good carmenere with that.

No, it's punch a hole in the bottom and put it to your mouth and pull the tab and you can drink it faster!

Use a solo cup. Just pop the top and pour it in, problem solved.

Our society has become too lazy to properly dispose of the lid in a proper garbage receptacle. If there isn't a button on the remote for that it ain't gonna happen. Most cheep bear ends up in a funnel running down a hose into some sorrority ho's mouth anyway so who cares what kind of top is on the can.

Don't know why but I haven't had beer from a can since high school.

It just feels cheap for some reason ;?

I was thinking the same thing. I will drink from a bottle some times but I prefer to use a mug or glass.
