|If they get to our beer then the terrorists win. CBS News reported yesterday that an FBI informant, during a court interrogation in Britain, laid out a plan that had been tested by al Qaeda to poison beer cans and sell them at football (soccer) games. The witness explained how the plan would work. “You just put poison in a syringe, inject it in a beer can and put a sticker on it, which would stop it leaking, and hand them out.” Another reason to drink beer from glass?|
Since most of the technical problems of beer in cans have been solved, they’ve slowly started gaining acceptance again, even among beer afficianados. Several craft brewers have been offering their beer in cans, and several more will probably be doing likewise in the coming year. Hopefully, this won’t put the kibosh on can’s comeback.
