Or any other large format bottle?

I like picking up bombers instead of a sixer bc there's been a lot of times when I've bought a six pack only to find I don't like the beer and I'm stuck with 4 or 5 more.

My problem with bombers is.....IT'S A LOT OF BEER!....and I also like to drink out of the correct glass whenever I can. Thing is... I don't have that big of glasses (for certain styles).

So while this is probubly a dumb question it's still something I've thought of more than once....thus justifying a post

I tend to split with a friend. I may be a not so rich college student, but when it comes to beer, I tend to be generous with my stash. Plus, a bit of company can make a good beer that much more enjoyable, and when people drink my homebrew, getting compliments is never a bad thing.

Well I can totally agree with all that (I graduate in 45 days ) but 99.99% of the time its just me drinking....SWMBO will take a sip but still the rest is ALL for me.


I need some beer friends...

I look at a bomber as two beers and will drink it only when I plan on having two. I'll pour as much as possible into the appropriate glass (if available) and pour the rest when that glass is empty.

A lot depends on the type of beer as well, stouts or other low carbonated beers I could recap and drink the next day.

Recapping....thats a phenomenal idea!

Oops, that was a typo. I actually recap the bomber with one of those 'snap' type wine bottle caps. They're cheap and it's easier than busting out the old wing capper.

Me too. I bought those specifically for 22 oz. beers. Have you had one launch off into your face yet?

This is exactly how I do it. No recapping for me. I pour the first glass, drink that, then go back for that last half to three quarters of a glass.

I pour two glasses also. No re-capping here! I pour two 10 oz glasses of beer, leaving the last oz or two in the bottle if it's bottle conditioned. If not, I get a few more sips as a bonus!

Way too much work! Just get a bigger glass. One pour, one trip, no capping. One better tip, pick up at least a 25 oz in case it's a belgian.
