    I'm waiting for a pentagonal five-pack of 14.4 oz. cans. Now that would really be something to celebrate.

    The biggest cans I'd like to see are pints. Any great IPA I would enjoy in that format. Specifically Two Hearted and Sucks

  5. Hahaha! I'll eat a Fred Flinstone steak with that. Maybe a couple of 64 oz colas and a basket of donuts dudes!
  6. Sucks! F***ing love that beer.
  7. Two Hearted.

    Anyone who wants to see 24oz cans is terrible at math.

    32oz. cans make even less sense


  12. I'm still confused as to what point you are making.

    Then you are being either facetious or intentionally daft. In either case, there's no point trying to explain my point any further.
  15. I don't think you are making one. A 24oz can is an existing format for beer distribution. What does that have to do with math? I realize that one 24oz can is equal two 2 12oz servings, a more or less standard amount for cans/bottles sold in packs. Do you mean to indicate solely that one 24oz can equals 2 2oz cans in terms of volume? Because that still has nothing to do with being "bad at math".

    I don't mean to be "OMG someone is wrong on the internet guy". I genuinely do not understand.
  16. Anyone that is concerned about calorie count in this argument is fundamentally FLAWED!!! IT'S BEER DAMMIT!!! Calorie-counters brought us the travesty beers like Michelob Ultra, Miller 64 and other unmentionable swill. Have U NO SHAME??!!

    Basically my point is this. If you want 24oz of beer, drink two 12oz cans. There is literally no advantage to having beer packaged in 24oz cans. Conversely, there is a clear advantage to having beer packaged in 12oz cans—namely, there are plenty of times when many of us don't feel like committing to 24oz of beer.
  18. Ahh,
    Ahh, clarity! I feel you. For me, two beers is sometimes a perfect amount, either as a stand alone or an addendum to a pack.

    I see where you're coming from, though.

    But you're not even factoring in the walking to the fridge factor. I mean do you even factor bro?

  24. The amount of people who "don't want to commit" to small amounts of beer here is astonishing. It's up there with the people who "don't want to get stuck with" the remainder of a six pack. This is the silliness that keeps bombers and other sized containers that keep us paying more around.

  28. No need for me, 12 oz is just fine. Keeps its carbonation and stays cool.
