Beer in a Twisty Bottle is Beer Without Honor

If You’re of whatever age is legal in your nation, or decided the law need not apply, then you’ve probably noticed that every ounce of bubbly swill comes in either a can or a bottle or a mug. Whatever the apparatus you choose to squeeze to your cracked red lips might be, they all share one important detail; there is no way to reseal what you’re drinking once it’s introduced to our air. It’s more than a way for CO2 to settle back in its home. A perpetually open beer is an unwritten contract between brew and patron that the drink will be finished, lest the remains turn the area it was left in into the green giant’s fermented anus.

For a long time, no one challenged the notion that beer is best taken in one go until the already heretical owners of Anheuser–Busch decided that a breach of the arcane contract was needed, and thus, Bud Light with a twist lid was born. I suppose it’s kind of fitting considering that Bud Light is so close to water, I probably wouldn’t notice if it came flowing from my sink. Despite the beer’s comically accurate association with water, it is an abomination unto the Beer Bible if such a text exists. There is no honor to be had drinking from these thick metal tubes, for even finishing the stuff can’t wipe away the fact that the option to finish a beer later was given, so for the love of beer, never so much as entertain the thought of drinking from this bottle. After all, Bud Light is an abomination on its own, making Bud Light in a twist bottle a triple abomination, and there is no ale nor Guinness dark enough to atone for a triple abomination.

Whenever you see one of your friends drinking from such bottles, feel free to call them a sissy Mc wimpen Weiner.

Ew! Most things that start with Bud are water, but anything starting with Natural is raw sewage!

By that standard, I'll stay on the feminine side with Sierra Nevada and Down Town Brown.

I don't know about anyone else, but popping that top off a bottle of beer is one of the reasons I enjoy drinking from a bottle. It's that awesome feeling.

I never have drunk any Budweiser/Anheuser-Busch products. I've had Kirin, Warsteiner, Sopporo, Sam Adams, Yuengling, and a few others. But I've heard Budweiser taste like crap. I did try IPA one time, and didn't enjoy it.

Twisty-top beer has been around for a long time.... I remember getting twisty-tops with my Rainier 12-pack for $3.99, $2.99 on sale... HOWEVER it was considered "bad form" to replace the twisty-top before the beer was sufficiently imbibed....

Truthfully, the only good beer comes from a keg.... Having my own tap and return keg makes this an easy thing.... Eight or nine friends with $10 makes a party....

Decent beer comes from where ever you find enjoyment.

I stick to Guinness, Sierra Nevada Torpedo, and Dogfish head 90 Minute IPA. On the other note twist tops have been around for ages, and it changes nothing for beers. I personally don't drink from bottles, I have keggerators. (That includes the Nitrogen mixed gas on my Guinness keg.) Cheers to beers.

I can't wait for the europeans to get here and explain to you all what real beer is.
Btw, Bud is nothing like water, I know because I've had it spilled on me... was somehow slimy and slippery at the same time. Nasty stuff.

Samuel Adams FTW! I'm not gonna lie and say that I never drink Beers like Budlight, Corona etc... Because I do, but when 'I' buy some, it's always Samuel Adams... They have so many different styles, it's crazy!

The only place where I would find it acceptable to be drinking from a twist-top bottle would be at a sporting event, so long as you can chose the beer that goes in it. Just replace those flimsy plastic cups with those twist-top abominations. The arenas charge an arm and a leg anyway, they might as well give you a receptacle you can adequately close. I hate those life-changing decisions where you either chose to lose your shit over a play or preserve your flimsily supported beer.

Otherwise, beer should be held in glass: a pint, a goblet, a mug. Using SOLO cups is simultaneously an act of desperation and a cry for help.

I tend to stick strictly to bottles when I buy beer. Generally avoid cans unless a buddy is offering, haha. I actually work for Anheuser–Busch as a vendor, so I stock their product every weekend. Being around it so much kind of drags making me want less to do with it, plus if I pick one off the shelf I have to go in the back and replace it XD So for me I lean towards others such as Killians, Blue Moon, Boulevard, and Red's.

I don't like canned beers, and I want to take beer home for various purposes. I may want to make beer soap, cook with them, or drink them. How often do you see people selling beer kegs in the USA? Hence, bottled beer.

Go ahead, call me names, but guess what? I get the option of breaking beer bottles for deadly weapons. "I'll cut a bitch."

I find that the darker the brew, the more I like them; however, I have yet to find a specific stout that I want to favor, or care enough to remember any names. I'll keep trying until I find "the one."

Just wanted to say that there are quite a few places in the US that sell kegs, but you usually have to ask up front or consult with the distribution warehouse to have the keg delivered. That's the way I do it.
