Happy National Beer Day

    Some Guinness was spilt on the barroom floor
    When the pub was shut for the night.
    When out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse
    And stood in the pale moonlight.

    He lapped up the frothy foam from the floor
    Then back on his haunches he sat.
    And all night long, you could hear the mouse roar,
    “Bring on the goddamn cat!”

    It's also National Alcohol Screening Day.

    OK, so for National Beer Day, assuming you are not drinking from a keg, do you prefer cans or bottles?

    I prefer beer in cans, when I can get it. Bottles just seem wasteful to me.

    Bottles, for sure. Except Guinness, because the cans have that plastic widget that releases nitrogen when you open the can, to give it the foam head.

    It depends. If you're just drinking at home or the bar, bottles are essential. But for outdoors, such as sneaking a few brews into your golf bag, going fishing, softball games, etc, cans are essential.

    Bottles, because I like to be classy when drinking Bud Light.

    If you like hops, cans are much better for today's high-octane IPAs than bottles.

    Cans are better for any beer. Not just big IPAs.

    Why do you say that? I've always thought the glass was kinder to the actual taste of the beer than the aluminum.

    Modern processes and metals have fixed all that. No more nasty aluminum flavor. Light through the bottle does more damage to beer than the can. And, let's face it. Good beer doesn't stay in the can very long.

    Cans have better flow and allow for more aroma while drinking. Bottles have that glug-glug thing going which flattens the beer as you drink it. Jim Koch can be a self aggrandizing douchebag who jumps on trends and acts like he started them, but the can he developed for Sam Adams is pretty good.
