All I have to say - put the endurance test on a Heineken Keg style beer can - versus a Coke can - the damn Coke cans explodes all over the place... Coca Cola really has gone on the cheap as of late and its a mess to clear out of a reefer... glad I stock more of the former than the latter....

Cans or bottles

Prefer cans over bottles. Bottles break, accidents happen, blood flows. Don't care about the bottles breaking, but do care about cleaning up all the blood, and the possibly lawsuit.

Jody, back in the days when Coors was first being exported east of the Rockies (and Silver Bullet meant Lone Ranger) I reached for the last can in a pack and found it was empty. Pinhole in the bottom, beer all gone. They sent me a nice Cross pen by way of apology--so it pays to let companies know when something is wrong.

On the other hand, what about installing a small soda machine (it's a co2 bottle and tap) and carrying the Coke syrup, which comes in waxed "milk cartons" or other syrups if you need sodas? No cans, less space. CO2 refills available in many towns, as an industrial supply.

lol...not a bad idea...Ironically though Pepsi cans do not suffer the same fate...I doubt Coke would anything but send me a free code for free music...But the latter idea - that actually isn't bad - wonder if I can purchase one of those soda dispensers that fast food places use and figure out how to downsize them or grab one of those ones used by those portable trailers with resteraunt on wheels..... Co2 is used with kegs too right?... then that dispenser can make it half and half... an idea worth looking into actually...Not a bad idea actually....

Jody, they make small ones for home minibars and the like. No need to downsize big ones. Sorry, I don't have details but I've seen them countertop size. Kegs may use Co2 or nitrogen, soda machines always use CO2, as far as I know.

I've become pretty good at water/tea/coffee/cocoa and skipping the cans and bottles.

Just hook the soda dispenser to a CO2 fire extinguisher... two bird, one stone!

BTW: it won't carbonate unless the water is cold.. so you are going to need ice or refrigeration.. kinda defeats the point.

Lets see... Sam Adams comes in bottles, Herradurra comes in bottles, Cointro comes in bottles, Champagne comes in bottles, and orange juice comes in cartons. I lead a blissfully can free existence.

I think a strategic, intelligent, and practical approach needs to be mentioned. Most high alcohol adult beverages with a sophisticated taste come in a glass container. Drink this first. Then, switch to a cheaper, canned adult beverage such as Red Dog Beer - you won't really notice the taste if enough of the glass contained beverage is consumed.

It definitely depends on my boat. It someone brings beer and it happens to be in a bottle I am not going to send them away but if I am buying it will probably be in cans, although a lot of my boat drinking is of the mt gay variety.

Don't discount those wine in a box deals or as I call them "Sophistication with an EDGE"...- not only are they very easy to stack and stowe and they come at a discount (love it when play on words comes together square like)....
