It was rest time to me and football time to Husband, Eurocup, you know. Despite I am not paying attention to him, a sound denounces:  He opens the beer can. I come to living room, get a sip and we laugh.

Husband thinks it is not fair, that he has the right to open a beer can without denouncing himself and calling the wife’s attention. He decides that the world beer producers should care about Husbands’ privacy. That is why there should be developed beer can openers with a silent mechanism, yet effective.

Despite I think he has that right, I would stick with the stiod of having a beer barrel home 😀

Thumb holder in your beer (beverage) can

29 Apr

I planned starting this post with a disclaimer, explaining I am not an alcoholic. Despite this is the case in fact, I enjoy myself a little beer with friends a bit often.  And therefore today’s stiod makes more sense if you like such circles, specially in these meetings you are not sitting the whole time.

How to know which beer can is yours when you and your mates left your cans on a table and went to a dance, for example?

That is not difficult if you press with your thumb in the very place where it usually stays when you hold a can. You will knead a little the can, in the form of your thumb (attention so you do that in the direction of the can opening). This will help you to find out easily which can is yours. And moreover it will help you to hold the can in such a way you’ll never miss the opening even after some beers.

5 liters beer can accessible to all

20 Apr

You don’t need to be an alcoholic. It is enough to like to gather friends home and share some beer.

I came across to the stiod by chance, as I saw a big can in a restaurant near my place. I thought it was just a decoration article, but some googling turned up to show it exists for real! You have a 5 liters beer can on your table. Everybody can just go to it’s tap, pour the beer into their glasses and continue chatting or playing some board game or whatever.

No need to run  and get new beer cans/ bottles all the time.  One thing that concerns me is to get the beer cold long enough,I  need to check if it has a system of holding the cold once it’s outside the fridge. (Come latter with more info)

It could also work as the widespread bag in box wine does. You keep the big can in your fridge and poor beer to yourself only when when you need/ want a sip.

The good thing, it seems to me, is that you might need less material for the can, so you reduce your waste producing (got to research more as well).

One important thing is to get this big cans easy to find, since I didn’t know I could get one of that before having the stiod of looking up some information about the “decoration article” I saw in the restaurant!

So, my stiod is  having a widespread advertising campaign, or having people demanding 5 liters beer accessible to all.

Cheers!
