Those would be utterly useless in a bar fight.

You can't throw them at the lame cover band, either.

so when you fall down you don't break/spill your beer?

duh!

gah! whatevs!

A lot of it is mixed drinks that are meant to be frozen. Others are things meant simply to be chilled. Glass and cans don't work as readily for those

This is just what Hartford needs, some new types of unrecyclable litter. The variety was lacking last time I was there

I see the point OK for mixed drinks I suppose, but why beer?
 
2013-03-16 06:56:02 PM  
How am I supposed to drink beer through one of those tiny straws?
 
2013-03-16 06:56:22 PM  
Getting the straw into the pouch is a pain sober.  This must be another idea from MADD to make it harder to drink.

BS. I used to freeze those and cut off the frozen tops to make popsicles for the kids. Imagine a shiny, frozen bottom heavy packet hurled like a Ninja Star at a lousy performer.

I'll finally be able to smash one on my forehead when I'm done drinking it.
 
2013-03-16 06:57:34 PM  
Trying to punch the straw through the hole (lulz) would result in bonus drunken mistakes.

Either way, I'm in.

You wont have to drink from a sippy cup.

There are enough hard-drinking engineers who will create devices that will let you drink it.

//Though it will take the sport out of shotgunning a beer.
 
2013-03-16 07:03:50 PM  
Well, since Capri Sun is already fermenting their stuff, might as well actually market it that way.
 
2013-03-16 07:04:24 PM  
Bah.

If only boobies produced beer, what a wonderful world it would be.

its a slight of hand magic trick... you have to dig your fingers into the side of the empty can to bend the metal right before it hits your head.

Wait, Connecticut is the ONLY state that bans this?  Why have I not seen this in other states?

As the "space rush" continues to ramp up, you can expect to see more of these marketing ideas.

Came for this.


/Wouldn't a "pliable container" either explode due to carbonation or void its contents on opening?
 
2013-03-16 07:35:08 PM  
The should enclose the pouches in one of those indestructible plastic tamper proof things too.

And then put all that in a double bag so it doesn't tear its way out.

Because needless packaging is FUN!
 
2013-03-16 07:40:31 PM  
At least bottles had some strength if you squeezed them in reaction to getting surprised, like whenever one of those asshole couriers comes careening down the yellow line in the morning traffic.
 
2013-03-16 07:41:00 PM  
Methinks the comments section on this article is the most amusing thing.
 
2013-03-16 07:42:57 PM  
Yay! Now we can have mold in our beer, just like Capri Sun!

2013-03-16 07:44:02 PM  
In MIchigan someone paid off a few lawmakers to get these exempt from the bottle deposit* law, which currently applies to all carbonated beverages.  Don't remember if it passed or not, but in any case, I'm not really a fan.  Capri Sun sucked when I was in elementary school, and it really isn't difficult to open a beer.

* Otherwise known as "the most successful recycling program in the country" **
** I really look forward to seeing these littered all around campus if they did get their exemption.  The only reason beer bottles aren't littering every lawn is the folks who walk by and grab 'em for the dime

I start with port
Drink two or three quarts
I drank Pernod
Then boogie some more
Speeding two weeks
On Wyamine
Don't mix too good
With ice box wine

Get on down and do it right
Really got to boogie
Got to boogie tonight
Whaaa got to boogie whaaa got to boogie
Whaaa got to boogie whaaa whaaa whaaa
Somebody got to boogie
Everybody gots to boogie

Put a quarter in the juke
Boogie til you puke
Form a big boss line
It's puking time
Cleaning woman
Found me on the floor
Can't wait til tomorrow
To boogie some more

It would be ideal for any where you have to carry your booze a distance, for example festivals, camping etc.

Here in the Nanny State you can by 70cl pouches of spirits (vodka and gin that i've seen) in supermarkets that are advertised for music festivals.

Gonna make it kinda hard to play Beer Hunter...
 
2013-03-16 07:47:55 PM  
Article says that not.
 
2013-03-16 07:53:43 PM  
I've never once found mold in a Capri Sun, but it's been year and years since I had one. Is this a recent thing?
 
2013-03-16 07:55:26 PM  
As long as you like your beer flat and plastic-y tasting, this is the only way to go.

Yeah, its gone around the news and on Facebook recently. People giving it to their kids and their kids spout black shiat.

I don't have kids either, but some friends have been circulating this on Facebook. I sometimes want to say, "WHY THE FARK ARE YOU GIVING THAT TO YOUR KIDS?" because they are all SAHM types with a millionty Pinterest crafts, so I would assume they're 100% Juice types, but I keep my opinions on the subject to myself. Even my mom, who served Hamburger Helper, SPAM, Pizza Rolls and Velveeta Shells & Cheese regularly wouldn't give us Kool Aid or Capri Sun.
 
2013-03-16 08:08:53 PM  
Too bad they don't sell party balls anymore.  They were just like 3 gallons of beer in a big plastic ball. And it came with a pump. I think...
 
2013-03-16 08:14:06 PM  
That won't fit in my car's cupholder.
 
2013-03-16 08:21:40 PM  
You know the article says nothing about beer being sold in those pouches. Just malt beverages. Like someone said all the way on the top, they put mixed drinks in them to be frozen easier.
 
2013-03-16 08:23:46 PM  
Nevermind, I'm an idiot, I read over the first line in the article that said malt and beer lol. Whatever though, They probably want the bill passed so they can just put the malt beverages in the juice packs, not actual beer.

Most of my friends' kids are too young for that; only a handful are past the diaper stage I think. Also I try to filter out the ones who won't talk about anything besides their kids...

At a nearby brewery customers can buy a "box" of beer, which is a box, a 'juice bag' type insert, and a tap. It holds a gallon of beer. You buy the box with bag and tap then just pay for the beer when you get refills. It's a good thing.

Of course it could come in handy if you gotta go after some escaped robots.
