(Toronto Sun)   Canadians prove they have their priorities straight with the invention of a drinking glass designed to protect your beer from UV rays. Or as most Americans call it, a red Solo cup   (torontosun.com) divider line 29

Just in case, you know, you wanted to listen to it.

That story was so retarded it makes me ashamed to be Canadian.

Beer should not be drank from a plastic cup.
I use a ceramic stein for patio drinking or a beerskin if away from home.

Why would you leave your beer out in the sun anyway? And if you do, its probably still in the bottle or can it came in, so the UV rays are already blocked. Still, there might be some people who pour their beverage into another container to drink, and leave that drink out in the sun for extended periods...I think they're referred to as "morons".

The sun is not really out in the morning.

Ummm if your beer is in the cup long enough that uv rays are a problem you are doing something wrong.

If you did pour your beer into a clear glass and took it out into direct sunlight, how long would it actually take for UV light to affect the taste?

What about the UV rays from my computer monitor?

And do I really care?

I don't like drinking cheap beer, but if I were smart I'd buy my regular brand and something cheap because I really don't give a shiat after about 5-6 beers anyway.

I hear that.  My only problem is it cost $7-9 for a 6-pack and $13-15 for a 12 pack, so I just go with the 12 pack.  By the time I make it to 10 beers, I'm ready for tequila or rum if I still feel like drinking.

But what if I like my beer skunky...and my beats funky and my oatmeal lumpy?

Solo cups are fine if you're at an undergrad kegger, but adults use a glass.

Canuckians drink right from the bottle - whilst splitting wood for the winter (coming in two weeks- eh).

If your beer is out in the sun long enough to get skunky it's also, warm, flat and has at least two dead bugs floating in it. I'd say the skunky taste is the least of your concerns.

Never liquor in the rear.

A cup is for protecting your manhood, not drinking out of.

A. About 15 minutes

B. Negligible

Then you should be drinking Hennessy, not beer.

Immediately. But the better question is how long until there is a detectable change in flavor, which would be quite a while-- much longer than it takes to drink a beer.

Same response to those who use a beer cozy to keep it cold; If you drink fast enough it won't be a problem.

Of course then you have two beers left for the drive home. This is day one stuff.

I'd like to brag that I have still never heard that song.


Also, my beer already comes in a UV-proof vessel. It's called a can.

And those of you who pooh-pooh cans, this is beer we're talking about. Not exactly the highest-browest of drinks.

Do you raise your pinky finger too, or does it interfere with your line of sight when looking down your nose at the bottle-drinkers?

Nothing wrong with bottles. My issue is with plastic. It's a horrible material to drink out of, especially beer. Lower quality cups often have small amounts of oil contamination that makes the beer go flat almost instantly. The actual Solo brand is better quality, but day to day glass is your better option for home / restaurant use.

Plastic should never be used as a drinking vessel. Even coke tastes shiattier in a plastic cup.

Deece: Plastic should never be used as a drinking vessel. Even coke tastes shiattier in a plastic cup.


I'm strange. I drink a lot of water, and I always have one plastic cup that I drink from. My friends call my plastic cup "Dragonflew's biatch". Lose one biatch, another takes its place. My current biatch is an old insulated Tim Horton's cup I have had since about 2001.

I drink my beer out of the vessel it comes in.

I also buy the beer with elephant repellant in it. Haven't seen an elephant in my back yard yet.

I've got a rock you might be interested in purchasing...
