Oh, goody. More sharp pieces of trash on the beach to step on, just like in the 60's.  I wonder if Jimmy Buffett knows about this.

Yeah, if it weren't for idiot litterers, I'd be all for this.  I imagine it's MUCH easier to pound down a pint with less fizz getting in the way.

Great idea. A big part of enjoying beer is the aroma. This should help those godless heathens who drink from the can discover what they've been missing.

Enjoy this change because Cigar City produces at least the majority of brews in cans, and proper pours from can to pint glass are difficult. Would appreciate the beer more with an easier pour.

I thought this was going to be about something else.

Back in college, the local boutique liquor store carried a line called Nude Beer.  It was awful and expensive.  But we'd buy in on occasion.

No trip to the beach or any other outdoor activity was complete until somebody cut their feet on one of these little puppies:

Then they came up with the two push button type. At least that limited the cut digits to the hands of the person opening the can.

Yeah, the rip tops got left everywhere.  This is going to suck.  Maybe they could could put a deposit on both pieces?  (Although deposits haven't kept up with inflation.  Lot's of people just throw their empties in the recyclables).  It shouldn't be impossible to design a full top open that doesn't actually separate the lid from the can.  It would have to push down into the can, or maybe roll up like a sardine can lid.

Let's be honest though, most people aren't going to use this to 'smell their beer', most people are going to use it to be able to chug faster.

My sister has one too, and ended up with blood poisoning another time, So yeah. And folks don't seem to be processing that these were ALL OVER the place in those days. The beach was always the best though. Hiding right under the sand like a little tiny pungee stick.

years ago there was a wide mouth bottled beer called Mickey's. the top wound up in smaller chunks after you ripped it off. shiat brew made for icy cold chugging on hot days.

if these stay with craft brewers, it might not be a problem.  The types of folks willing to pay for special beer tend not to be litterers.

Modern cans for beer impart none of the metallic flavors one would previously associate. Check out Cigar City (out of Tampa) if available where you are, especially the Jai Alai or Tocabaga. May be drank from the can or poured, though as I mentioned the pours are a little aggravating compared to a bottle.
