beer in a can
« on: September 30, 2005, 05:24:32 pm »
There are times when beer must be in a can.  When tubing.  At certain outdoor events.  Shoved up a dead chicken's ass before you put him on your smoker.

What beers are good in a can?
Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not "Mr. Lebowski". You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

Tecate.  That is the one beer I can think of that I prefer in the can instead of the bottle.

None are good in a can, but I'd say get whatever you normally drink.  I don't allow bottles around the pool, which means pouring into a plastic cup or cans.  I can never find Shiner Blonde in a can.  I know, none of this helps you.

Heineken, is not bad in their "NEW" can, I prefer my Pearl Beer in a can as well.

...Possibly the biggest downgrade from bottle to can is Corona...It's really bad, Stay away from it at all cost...It's like having Sex with a Fat Cub's fan.

Did you ask about this before?  I knew I had seen it, but I could never remember where.  Then I saw it again, but didn't know who to PM.

Anyway, they seem to have it pretty regularly at Grapevine Market here in Austin.  I don't know if you have one of those in Houston or not.

Duh!  Of course dogshit tastes better when served on fine china.

Corona is not a great beer, but it's not THAT bad.  Like if I go to someone's house and they say "you wanna beer?", and I say "sure". If they bring out a Corona, it ain't gonna kill me.

Extremely cold beer.

Beer so cold that it is icy.

Beer so cold that it is too cold to taste it.

Otherwise, you have to go bottled.

Seriously, if I am drinking a beer from a can, I am not expecting much in the way of flavor. Just cold suds.
It's my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of 'em was one kinda sombitch or another.

I like Tecate, as well.  I think it's pretty good for Beer Can Chicken.  If it is the right atmosphere, I enjoy a Lone Star.  Not that it's good beer mind you, but that it's a Lone Star.  Dos Equis in a can is pretty good, but damned expensive.

Boddington's and Guiness are very acceptable in a can as they have the widget inside that infuses the beer when you open it.  Otherwise, I agree that Heineken is ok in a can but the general rule is that beer in cans sucks.

Somebody beat me to it, but I would definitely vote for Guiness in a can ... their patented plastic whateveritis in the can makes it taste almost as good as on tap, while the bottled version tastes dead.

Stop me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Guinness come with the widget in the bottle too? I could of sworn it was in there the last time I treated myself...

Yes, now it does. I think that's a relatively recent development.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

I do not believe the words "prefer" and "Pearl Beer" have been used in the same sentence in all of recorded human history.

You should be very proud of yourself.

I think.

I like Tecate, if you have to drink beer in a can. If it's hot  and I'm beer thirsty, I could drink Milwaukee's Beast Light and enjoy it. But if I got a choice, I'd go with Tecate.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it

Headache-cold Lonestar in a can tastes great on a dizzying hot day. I'm surprised you people don't know this.
