    I recently saw a four pack of Lucifer Tall Boys. I was gonna buy it but I didn't feel like spending $17.99. Although that's probably as cheap as I'll find it considering it was from a Total Wine in Northern NJ.

    How much of a difference would there be between a good Belgian ale in a bottle and in a can?

    Good point. Were cans even safe then?

    "Safe"? Well, you wouldn't have wanted to crush one of those early steel/tin cans against your forehead ;) , but the American Can Co. had developed a liner for their beer cans to prevent off-flavors which went by their trademarked "Keglined" terminology. As seen in the ad below, "Keglined" was often emphasized, and was in as large a typeface as the Krueger brand itself. (It was also prominently printed on those early cans, as well).


    There's a (apocryphal?) story that the American Can Co. salesmen would scrap off the liner and eat it during their sales pitch to dubious brewmasters to show that the lining was safe.

  8. Maybe I should go pick up a single of Gubna so I can finally review liquid onions.
