My friend owns Thunderhead brewery and is canning his Gold medal winning (and best selling) honey wheat beer. The last batch he canned failed to pass his strict quality standards and he canned 90 cases before he realized the problem. What to do with 90 cases of sub-standard beer (it tastes fine to me!)? We shot up five cases this afternoon and we still have 85 cases to go!

Oh, we cleaned up. We hauled out every scrap of blown to bits cans, plastic rings, and cardboard boxes. We may have left some 9mm, 7.62X25, and.22 brass though.

You do realize that you can drink it first, then shoot it?
