    Since everyone seems to be canning these days it makes sense that 24 oz cans are just around the corner. A quick google search shows Kona will be releasing a Longboard Island Lager in the large format. What beers do you want to see adopt this format?

    Great idea, an 800 calorie beer. Cuz us beer drinkers don't have a hard enough time as it is staying trim

    You've never drank 2 12oz cans of Ten Fidy before?

    Nope. Never in my life have I desired more than one RIS in a session.

    I'd rather see more things in a 12oz format rather than paying more for a novelty.

    I'm obviously a weirdo then. At any rate I'd rather have a RIS in a large format can then a beer that I actually care about getting warm over time, unless you are slamming it or something.

    I mean for instance Sucks is going to come in a 32oz bottle, while that sounds cool I just don't know how practical it is, unless you just pour some and then go put it back in the fridge. But with something like Ten Fidy you can just pour as you go while it warms over time.

    Prima Pils...

    Because I never have just one and having them in 24oz cans saves me the trouble of going the the fridge again.

    Nothing...even if I am drinking 2 or 4 or even 6 of something, I would still only want it 12oz at a time. Just something about popping open that next/new/fresh beer!

    Wow. Not to add to this subject but I'm amazed you drank two cans of that. I love Ten Fidy for what it is but after a whole can I'm either ready for a different style, a different stout, or sleep.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Nugget Nectar in a huge can, just cause I love IPAs out of the can and I wouldn't mind knocking down 24oz. of it at once.

    I must be a mutant or something, but I have been known to sit and sip a bomber/750 of 10%+ beers over an evening with no problem. That can't be that rare...

    It's not; I often start with a bomber followed by a 12 oz when I drink my stouts. For me it's always time for a good stout, or three.

    None, I'd much prefer to have two 12 oz. cans than one 24 oz. can, unless the 24 oz. can is a significantly better value.

    Yes...but it does cut into the exercise program...have to do a couple extra 24 oz. curls to compensate...

    Following along with Hanzo's thoughts - I've gotten to where I can sip my way through a 22 oz. or a 750 ml over the course of an evening, so what's another couple ounces? Some styles I prefer cold, and my ounces/minute rate doesn't work so well with a bigger container staying cooled. I can see this getting to the same argument that rages about bombers - the value proposition and cost per ounce. It's essentially an aluminum bomber, so I'd bet we see the same issues with pricing.

    All of the beers I love...and if a price break is part of this format, even better.

    I would imagine pacing yourself is the key; and if you're in your own crib, get wobbly...who cares.

    Now that Founders is in Texas, I'll have to find out what all this KBS hubbub is all about. And from what I'm hearing, that may entail engaging in fisticuffs in the parking lot to get my hands on some. :)

    Over the course of an evening, that's different. I just mean that it normally doesn't take me more than 30 minutes to drink two beers, and in that span of time I wouldn't want to drink two cans of Ten Fidy. Everyone is different, no biggy.

    Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. I can drink those all day. I love the 6-packs, but some tallboys when camping would be great, too.

    While I may say I actually DON't think I've drank two ten fidys in a row, I sure as hell wouldn't mind. And I've drank big boy bombers to the dome before, so I see where you're coming from.

    Plus I like you address the case that other styles will get warm and you don't want that. Very very true. I'm going to be making trips to the fridge when the Sucks quarts come out

    Left Hand Milk Stout all day long. That's some good sipping there. Any good stout will do cuz temp really isn't an issue and carbonation isn't either. Unless your pounding down that brew the last 1/3 tends to be the dregs in the can if you are taking your time drinking.

    I'm with others who say that they want none to be in that format. I've seen those big ass Dale's Pale Ale cans and they're hilarious, but I only wanna buy one as a novelty. Pint cans are perfect in my opinion. Many companies are already getting it right in my eyes. I'll be glad to continue buying 12 and 16oz cans.
