That's one of the first time I actually posted my opinion to an idiotic blog. I usually avoid blogs like computer viruses, but I had to respond to that one. Poor sap should stick to writing about flower arrangements and other subjects that are closer to his knowledge base.

I would consider drinking beer from a box if it was something other than that crap. that has to be the most ignorant statement I have ever seen written. He probably grew up on that crap and has never had a real beer.

Had a discussion about replacing kegs with other items and the question remains how to keep carbonated, and not introduce O2 into the beer.

I'm assuming that if the package truly is a carboard box, then the beer is not carbonated. Therefore I would have to assume that the CO2 is introduced at the spigot, like soda machines do.

Or, if there is actually a keg inside the box, then the CO2 could be used to replace the beer as it's poured and prevent the O2 from oxidizing the beer.

The best I could hope to get out of this is another method of kegging my beer. I do not have high hopes. I also cannot see how spending more for this packaging is going to work. I mean, cans are so handy. They chill fast. People can just grab one out the cooler and get back to the party. People drinking this beer don't care that much about drinking from a can.

well your's is pretty nice too

anyway, back on subject... I'm quite sure I would drink beer out of a box, I'm not really sure I would prefer to buy beer in a box instead of just buying a case of cans, but why not ? Once you've seen what a bucket of fermented beer looks like when you open the top of the bucket, you shouldn't be grossed out over a carboard box

Addendum: After looking at a close-up image, I believe they are using a CO2 cartridge to either A) Carb the beer like a soda machine, or B) replace the boxes CO2 with CO2 from a cartridge.

Then the question remains whether this will be a device that Homebrewers can use to their advantage. I might have to buy one just to find out. I imagine that this thing will not be on the market for very long.

Thanks! I like it too. Would love to say that it is SWMBO, but she is not.

They could do it like a wine in the box with one of those things inside a guiness bottle in it, except maybe bigger. And if you take it to a party or something, wouldn't get a chance to go flat anyway.

Wait, did anyone else see this at the bottom of one of the links in that article?

Quote:
Brewers including Anheuser also plan some new beers in addition to new packaging. Anheuser intends to test Budweiser Select 55 -- a brew with just 55 calories -- in several markets later this year, as it tries to compete better with MillerCoors's MGD 64, a 64-calorie brew that is off to a strong start. Mass-market brews such as Bud Light, Miller Genuine Draft and Budweiser are roughly in the 100 to 140 calorie range.
Bud Select 55? Ugh.
