(VinePair)   To survive and appeal to broader audience, craft brewers are ditching tallboys and 22-ouncers for 12-oz cans. "I'm no beer-drinking snail, but I have a tough time taking down a pounder of good pilsner before the last ounces go warm and flabby"   (vinepair.com) divider line

Have they never heard of coozies?

Great. Now cool it with the hops and learn to make beer.

I was trying to look up "hipster beer coozie" but I saw this so this is what I'm going to post instead.

This 12-ounce can thing sounds brilliant.

I wonder why nobody has tried it yet.

I have to go to this place Thursday that seems to specialize in IPAs and fruity beers, neither of which I am fond of.  Has anyone heard anything about Une Année Brewery in Niles, IL?

Nope, but it sounds like Base Camp in Portland. Went there once and grabbed a sampler card ... 40+ beers on tap and I found one that wasn't hoppy, fruity, a sour, juicy or some godawful combination there of.

Base Camp no longer exists. Apparently, even Portland hipsters have limits.

No, but this time of year I'd expect a craft brewery to have an Oktoberfest beer on tap, and we're getting into porter/stout season. You should be able to find something.

Lightweights shouldn't be allowed in the management chain.

Well I just did. My daughter works in Niles, and I'm going to have her get me some.

After the beer "sommelier" (I think there may be a name for that) runs down the list of 40 beers I just pause and ask for a brown ale.

Which they probably do not have on tap. If you're lucky, they'll have Moose Drool or Downtown Brown in cans.

Worse than that.  It is order by QR code only.  I will go in with a positive attitude and hopefully Lish is correct about having Oktoberfest stuff left over (it ends today, at least it does in Munich).

Not a bad idea considering the ABV of some of the craft beers.

Except that the beer in the article is 3.2%.

I love the order by QR code when the place has it set up properly. There's a place by us that does. Just sit down at an open table, scan the code, place an order, and beers are brought out in a few minutes. But you can still order at the bar if you want.

Breweries around here only sell beer in 12oz cans except at sports arenas. One of my favorites is going to start selling 18 packs which is nice.

I love everything I've had from them, mostly sours.  The current lineup has several stouts and lagers/pilsners, I'm betting they are all good as well.

Most of the local breweries and cideries around here sell their beer in bottles and 12 oz cans. One of the fun exceptions is Portland Cider House which has a machine that will make you a British Pint sized can of anything they have on tap to take home

It takes too much finesse to make beer that doesn't taste like vomit.  Any mouthbreathing assclown can make an ipa.
