the beer in a box seems like a good idea for parties. providing draft quality beer in a small package can be convenient for the occasional drinker who wants to have draft available but doesn't want a dedicated kegerator.
but how is it different from the overpriced mini kegs that are already on the market? and how are you supposed to keep it cold unless it is sitting in a fridge? i suppose you could modify a picnic cooler to hold one, or they could market one made specially. (i'm assuming that most beers sold in these are the type that should be served ice cold)

I couldn't continue reading after this statement:
Despite what the microbrewers will tell you, all beer is pretty much the same. Consumers who pay a premium do so more for the experience than the taste.
I would wager a bet shiny objects can easily distract this a-hole.

So, they had a WineO evaluate beer? Can we say Duh? I had a flaming WineO complement me on my home-made Pinot Noir. Got the whole WineO schtick evaluation. Except it was blackberry cider!

I had someone tell me my Apfelwein was a nice Chardonnay.

I'm excited about this news... this must also be true...

Despite what the restaurants will tell you, all beef is pretty much the same. Consumers who pay a premium do so more for the experience than the taste.

I need to stop going out to eat... McDonalds burger should be just as good as a dry aged NY strip.

This is going to save me a fortune!
