    Because you are not able to adequately review appearance and head retention while surreptitiously quaffing you paper bag-obscured 40oz malt beverage as you lean up against the facade of your local Mini-Mart.

    You underestimate the abilities of hobos equipped with Iphones.

    We need more six packs, at the very least, 4 packs. No more large format beers that coast way to much. 40oz is just a stupid idea.

    Everything in moderation, including moderation.

    Why would they when they can rip you off perfectly with a 22 oz bottle?

    Stay cheap my friends.
