It gets worse.<br><br>According to a report on "World Beer Containers" from The Freedonia Group, by the end of this year, plastic bottles will emerge as a viable form of beer packaging.<br>The Miller Brewing Company has begun test marketing 16-oz., 20-oz. and one liter multilayer PET (polyethylene terephthalate) beer bottle for Miller Lite, Miller Genuine Draft and Icehouse brands. The bottles are produced for Miller by Continental PET Technologies. Anheuser-Busch has also performed limited testing of its amber colored, 16-oz. multilayer PET bottle for Bud and Bud Light brands to select cities.<br><br>

I've been noticing a big take off in aluminum "bottles". Shaped just like a glass bottle, 16 oz. only aluminum.<br><br>Plastic? Yech.<br><br>Normally I'll drink a Miller Lite, and think it's okay. Miller Lite is about the only light (light colored that is) beer I can stand, other than Corona. But go to the ballpark and order one in those crappy plastic bottles.. man it kills the taste.<br><br>
Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!® twitter.com/SgtBaxter facebook.com/Bryan.Eckert
The finest rum I ever tasted was produced in limited quantities by Westerhall in Grenada. They stopped exporting to Canada a couple of years ago and now I gather the distillery was severely damaged by the hurricane last year. Pity.<br><br>
Had a great rum in St. Kitt's - CSR. Never been able to find it anywhere since then. Drank it in a 'Rusty Nail', mixed from CSR, Ting, a drop or two of bitters and a grating of fresh nutmeg.<br><br>Here I drink Gosling's or Myers, but I had Pusser's while on the GeekCruise, and really liked that.<br><br>Hmmm...makes me think a think a rum tour of the Caribbean Islands may be in order for an upcoming vacation... <br><br>
I drank rum when I was in the Army, but that was years ago. Now I prefer the bourbons. Give me some Makers!<br><br>As for beer, I love black and tans! mmmmmm tasty. There are a lot of local breweries here that put the big ones to shame.<br><br>
