    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 :wink: , 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.

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