    Heineken Cube concept bottle

    The guy who designed this must be a marketing genius. Even I would probably start drinking heineken more often if they came out with this, and I am a very "stick to what I like," kind of guy who hates marketing ploys, and I'm not very fond of Heineken.

    horrible idea, you can't possibly see the road while drinking out of that cube.

    There isn't enough room around the cap to allow my gorilla-size fingers to remove it. I would probably end up eating the whole thing. This might be messy.

    I still advocate for cans. Its a bummer that breweries I like don't use them and prefer glass, which lets the sun light in.

    You have no idea how many times I have used that quote! Blue Velvet is one of my favorites, and definitely Lynch's best IMO. One time at a friend's family party, his uncle whom I knew was drinking a heineken and I said, "Let me tell you a joke about heineken. What kind of beer are you drinking?" He said, "Heineken," and I SCREAMED "F THAT S PABST BLUE RIBBON!" and left the party briefly. Luckily my friend's family thought it was hilarious.

    And I think certain beers are better in cans, but others just don't taste right in them. As long as it hasn't been sitting around too long, the light factor really isn't a problem.

    Why can't they just sell beer in a 5 gallon pail?

    I think it would be ineffecient in the fridge.

    Sure, you can pack your fridge full of them, BUT you're not going to have good cooling capabilities if you do.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Red Stripe isn't worth drinking. Totally unremarkable.

    Plus it would eliminate the broken beer bottle glass that my bike tires like to find.

    If you can open it with fingers... then you are a gorilla, it is not a twist off.

    Cans are becoming popular with some of the microbreweries more and more around here.

    Cans are OK if you are pouring into a glass. I just don't like drinking from a can.

    From a microbrew concept, isn't it more difficult to can then bottle a beer? I mean you can manually bottle beer with some pretty simple hand machines... what does it take to can a beer?

    This is all it takes to cap a bottle...

    agreed... or like he's drinking a bottle of cologne or something. If these do come out Heineken will likely become, even more so, the ultimate d-bag beer.
