However, the difference between 330 ml and 355 ml is just 25 ml. So that's 25 ml more for you. 16 oz are 473.18 ml, which are 26.82 ml less than 500 ml. Overall, 1.82 ml more. q.e.d. foo.gif

Yes, but I have never actually bought a 16 oz can of anything- the 12 oz size is far more common. You have to weigh how frequently the various sizes are used. If I buy 12 12 oz bottles for every one 16 oz, I'm losing out on 27 mL on the 16 oz, but gaining 300 mL with my two six packs. That's an overall yield of 273 mL over euro sizes.

You've never bought a pint can? Guinness? Murphys? Basically all craft canned beer?

Now you're taking this way too seriously. I mean, these are cans and bottles we are talking about, right?

How much for one sip?

I buy pretty much all of my beer in bottles, and craft canned beer is still pretty rare.

You've posted more on the subject than anyone else here. If anyone is taking it too seriously, it's you.

It is relatively rare, but a lot of really great breweries are doing only cans. It's mostly the larger and already established craft brands doing 12pk 12oz cans now. I think we'll start to see a really large share of the craft market (especially really small local and nano brands) go into the 4pk pint can gig.

I think it's obvious that from Bhowie's post on nothing was meant seriously. I'm sorry that this wasn't obvious to you. My last remark was intended to be ironic.

You took me too seriously, I took you too seriously. My initial post was intended to be a bit of a throwaway, a silly jibe at a discussion I assumed to be over. You leaped in immediately with a rebuttal, which I read to mean that you were more invested in the discussion than I thought, and responded in kind.

Canning equipment is a much more expensive investment than bottling equipment, so I think that's seriously doubtful. There's a reason only the larger and more established brands are doing it, you have to have a certain economy of scale to make it work financially.

Not true. Well, true to an extent. But a lot of the small companies are already doing canning, either buying their own or contract canning another facility (like Schlafly does at Point). Plus there's been several mobile canning operations going around, kinda seems like one or two in each major US region. It'll br a trend-you heard it here first.

interesting... i can't say that I've ever noticed but I was pretty sure the Hoegaarden I got at the grocery store was always 12oz. It's not that much of a difference obviously but the bottle was noticeably smaller in my hand. If that's true I feel better now cuz I thought that damn Costco was just trying to rip me off! happy.gif

There are some Belgian beers with 37.5 cl. Those in the tall corked up bottles. For example, Mort Subite's Gueuze and Kriek or Liefman's Kriek. The regular bottles with bottle caps are almost always 33 cl.
