In which it was a can


This is going to be short but I thought this was amusing.  As you know, I have been collecting beer caps again.  I collected them the first time for a project of Andie’s and now I’m thinking of a project for Keely.

One of the things that makes the projects interesting is to have new and unusual beer caps. Needless to say, I have a ton of Heinken and Corona and Bud Lite’s but I like to have a lot of craft beer caps too.  Therefore, whenever I go to a new bar or restaurant, I ask the bartender to collect caps for me.  Normally, the bartender is happy to but sometimes they just refuse.

When I was in Maine I was psyched to collect some new caps but I went to a new restuarant with some people.  As usual, I asked the bartender to collect caps and then I ordered a Tecate which is a Mexican beer that I rarely drink.

I was excited to drink my new beer when they put THIS up on the bar.  That’s right, the beer is in a CAN!

I said to the bartender, “why wouldn’t you tell me that the beer was in a CAN when I’m clearly collecting caps?” to which I got no good answer.

Unbelievable.  Fortunately, when I was in LA I did get some new cool caps.  So, if you have cool microbrew caps around you and want to send them to me, let me know.

Oh! and no cans … just saying.

    You mean you aren’t planning to do a pop top project? Or send them to Ronald McDonald house?

    I had a top once that said open before drinking….it was from a very hoppy IPA my husband likes. If I find it, I can send it? I found it quite amusing…..
