If there is one beer that I'd even think about trying when I turn 21...that's it.

Yeah, but now when you're out on the go or whatever you don't have to worry about having all that ice in your backpack or pockets to keep the beer you're inevitably carryin around cold.

I don't like most beverages to be ice-cold anyway. It makes them too hard to drink.

That was my first thought to, Johnny. But maybe it would just burn off, like the paint (I assume paint and any beer residuals burn off/out).

I feel conflicted about recycling because we have a drought here, so washing the cans seems a little wasteful. I do use a can opener to take out both sides (of, say, a vegetable can) and smash it flat.

But Richard, it's beer. Beer _needs_ to be cold.

Yeah, anyone who drinks warm beer and is comfortable with it clearly has many, many problems, some of which may be unsolvable.

There's a long way between 32 degrees and "warm," especially for porters and stouts.

People who need to drink their beer ice cold are drinking cheap crappy beer.

Beer that actually tastes good doesn't need to be ice cold.

A one that is not cold is hardly a one at all.

Let's illustrate with one of my bogus mathematical formulas:

The One(itude) is directly proportionaly to the Cold(itude) of the one.

Though I have to admit, on certain evenings in late spring, a Cool One can be very refreshing.

I will never drink beer out of a can.

Make it ergonomically correct with an attachment that massages my fingertips and a device that painlessly injects fluids into my bloodstream to combat hangovers, and I'll still not buy it.

Unless I see a commercial on TV that shows beautiful women being attracted to me for drinking out of said can.

Hmm. I've found a few beers taste better out of a can than from bottles. Although, they're invariably the ones that taste way, way better on tap.

I have to second the notion that "ice-cold" isn't always preferred. Truth be told ,beer presents best when served at or around its fermentation temperature. Lagers therefore are better in the 40-48 F and Ales in the 50-60 F.

Speaking as someone who co-owns a fridge designed specifically for the purpose of storing and serving beer at approximately 55 degrees Fahrenheit, I definitely agree with Slash. Crap beer has to be ice cold to dull the lousy taste. [Smile]

I can't wait for those cans. I like Boddington's out of a can.... but will they be able to combine the cooling system with those draught cans? That would be one monster can. [Big Grin]

Can can can you use a draught can? Can you use a draught can? Can you use a draught la la la la la la la....

Yes, but you don't drink it from the can, do you? Anyone who drinks Boddington's, Murphy's, or Guinness straight from the can has serious personal issues and needs to get himself (or herself) checked.

And while Boddington's is, indeed, better from the tap than from the can, most people don't have space for a keg in their houses, nor do they drink enough to make buying kegs a good option.

Personally, I think the best beer I ever had was at the Mucky Duck Pub in Monterey. It was called Penny Black Porter, and served cask style (just below room temperature). Truly awesome.

Ew, no. It hadn't even occurred to me. [Razz] The bubbles are half the fun, anyhow. [Smile]

Who makes the Penny Black? Was it a house brew, or something from a local brewery?

The full name of Penny Black is "English Ales Pendragon Penny Black Porter," and it is made by English Ales Brewery in Marina, CA. So, I guess it's just a local thing. Which sucks, because I loved it so much and am now like 300 miles away from the nearest pub that serves it.

If I recall correctly it had a strong toasted flavor (not sure if that is from the malt or the hops) and a hint of iodine (which reminded me a bit of an Islay scotch). Also reminiscent of coffee and chocolate [edit: but then I tend to get that out of most porters].
