"The Budweiser bow tie first appeared in national advertisements in 1956. The brewery says the bow tie look was introduced when too many consumers were using the term "Bud" when ordering the beer in a bar. So the company added the double triangles to emphasize the full Budweiser name."

How'd that work out for them?

Noticed the link for the 15 best beers in the world.  Most of them are Imperial Stouts.  Didn't know that Bourbon County Stout was no longer being made.  Too bad.  Expensive, but quite an awesome beer.

Bourbon County Stout is still being made. The Rare Bourbon County Stout is what was retired.

Thanks for the correction Kyle.

IMO, dumb gimmick.....11 ounce can for the fashonably hip.

I am a curmudgeon, however, as the only can I really like as a beer package is a keg.  If ever given the choice, I choose a bottled product over an equivelant canned one....even if I pour it into a glass.

I understand the ecological and beer quality aspects of the can, and appreciate the craft beer movement to provide an "on the go" packaging alternative.....it is just my personal last choice unless I need it for a reason (like a park, or the pool).

But then again, being a homebrewer, with a kegerator, and stainless steel growlers....I am not much of a packaged beer consumer anyway.

Red Hook brewing is starting to put their Longhammer IPA into cans.  And that is my standard "go to" beer.  I've been considering buy some cans and doing a blind taste test with the bottles.  I think your note has pushed me.  We're gonna do it this weekend.

Found this under my porch this weekend.  Vintage bow-tie shaped can.  It was crushed like that back in the 70s or thereabouts.
