Typically, beer is brought onboard our boat in cans (Heineken keg-cans) and depending upon length of passage, either packed on ice in the 70 qt Igloo, or stacked in the fridge. Canned beer is the way to go when vast quantities are being consumed.

Without exception though, I always bring along at least a 6-pack of bottled IPA (Red Hook, Harpoon, Bass), for those times when a couple beers is the limit and taste takes priority over getting drunk.

Our boat's refrigerator always has a mix of aluminum and glass, the booze/wine locker - all glass.

Every time I read True Blob, I amire him more, even if he is an architect! Mix in the 'fridge - GOOD beer in bottles for taste, cans for convenience. On th question of Corona, however, I have always wondered: If your beer is so bad you have to flavor it with limes, why would you pay good money for it?

Yeah! Nature's most perfect food is perfect the way it is (barley, hops, yeast & water). When the "accessories" like fruit become requirements, something is clearly wrong at the start.

Guinness comes in a can and I also just found a site that sells and ships 5 liter keg cans and the selection includes Warsteiner. Refrigeration may be a problem but where theres a beer there's a way. Do a search for 5 liter keg can and you will find it

You can keep the Corona's , I prefer Kalik similar but better and no citrus in my drink unles maybe a hefeweizen (sp?) with orange or lemon

Of course Red Stripe ( IT'S BEER!)

The most important thing is temp of about 38f

Life's too short to drink cheap beer.

Have a great day

Beer should be properly poured into a cool glass from a bottle and enjoyed leisurely. Then throw the bottle overboard.
But don't throw Corona overboard, as this could be considered hazardous waste.
But really, I agree with PBzeer or use bottles and store them safely.

Zanshin-
"Question - Does throwing glass bottles overboard constitute littering or diversifying wildlife habitats? Does sinking aluminum cans cause damage to the ocean's flora and fauna?"
Both MARPOL violations, $10,000 per container. We used to be taught that alu cans degrade rapidly in salt water--it turns out they don't. They just become trash. On the other hand, SCUBA divers get real excited to find 100 and 300 year old bottles buried in the bottom, often intact, and they are considered valuable artifacts. Dangerous trash in a swimming area, nuisance in a dregging area...but sinking old champagne bottles in out of the way places sounds more like "reforestation" to those of us who've pulled up colonial bottles.

What kind of racer carries beer on board? Weighs too much, easily available after the races.
