    Oh man, I’m very nervous about my level of drunkedness in the episodes to come after seeing this one!!

    But we did go and eat after this episode, so that may have helped.

  • Ken Hunnemeder

    Just wanted to come clean and say that I believe I was wrong about the cost efficiency debate on canning vs. bottling. Despite what I said on the show, I think canning is more expensive than bottling.

    But it is cheaper for shipping, so that might off set some of the cost. Also less bar fights are started with cans.

    If anyone was interested to see the documentary with the guys from Beer Advocate that Ken mentioned, it was on the History Channel’s show, “The Works”. The episode was all about beer and was very informative. I think you can watch the full episode online at: http://www.history.com/minisites/the-works

    Thanks for the info Marla, that was a great documentary. And just so you know, we haven’t forgotten about the Atlanta episode, it’s in the hopper.
