How much bigger do you think a case of beer will end up getting?
There was a time when a dozen eggs meant 12 eggs, but then came along a baker's dozen which meant 13 eggs. That was just in case a clumsy baker broke an egg while he was in the middle of cooking a meal. A gallon of gas meant a gallon, and it still does even though a gallon of gas cost a lot more these days. A case of beer was always a standard 24 cans or bottles. Then came along a 30 pack of beer, which fit perfectly into the refrigerator. If that wasn't enough a 36 pack came onto the store shelves. What's next a 48 pack? Which would actually equal 2 normal cases of beer in layman terms.
The Austin Beerworks brewey in Texas has produced a 99 pack of their "Anytime Ale." It's 7 feet long and weighs more than 80 pounds.. It's a thing of beauty, isn't it???
Lol....wow...anytime and all the time apparently.
It would be hard for anyone to beat this monstrosity... unless people start bringing their own fork lifts to the beer store with them...hahaha
great stuff I want one but could not carry it LOL
This is awesome, and that is the only word that can even begin to describe this 7 foot long, 80 pound work of art.
I doubt the cases will get much bigger. The marketing departments probably have the whole thing all strategized and such. Maybe the larger cases are more appealing to people who want to buy in bulk (hence lower cost per bottle/can) because of the poor economy, who knows. Hopefully the prices don't go up along with the case size though!
The problem is carring the cases for me. The bottles are too heavy and they have taken out the dividers so the bottles break easier. Cans are much lighter but they only sell them in 15 packs in the great white north eh? I wish they would go back to the small squatty bottles and get rid of the long necks. then it would be lighter.LOL
I am holding out for a 36 pac or case (already easy to obtain from beer stores in Canada) and if I may add, that will be heavy enough to offset (counter balance) my inevitable beer belly. Now if my goal is inebriation and simultaneously bulking up I can only hope to work-out with that 96er or 99er from Texas...
I remember the first time someone mentioned a suitcase of beer, I had no idea they made a 24-pack of beer called a suitcase. The 18 can case of beer has almost taken over the original 12-pack. I would hate to own a liquor store in this day and age with all of the different sizes, not to mention beers.
How about cutting to the chase and drinking Jeremiah Weed, which is 100 proof?
You learn something new everyday. The 7 foot long 99 pack of Anytime Ale from Austin Beer-works in Texas certainly seems to have the record.
