Turn any beer can into a pint glass with this gadget


The popularity of craft beer has soared in recent years, prompting some analysts to fret about a potential “beer bubble”. In the U.S. alone, new breweries are opening at a rate of roughly one to two per day, according to the Brewers Association.

To meet the ever-increasing demand for quality beer, craft brewers are returning to old-school methods of beer delivery—namely, cans.

New breweries are opening at a rate of roughly one to two per day.

Canned beer tends to taste fresher, presumably because it prevents light damage. But more importantly, it just tastes better than bottled beer. (Yes, that’s endlessly debatable, but I’d take a can over a bottle most days of the week—particularly for IPAs and other drink-fresh styles.)

But there’s one big problem with drinking beer directly from a can or bottle: Without the a head, you don’t get the aroma. That’s why glasses are the preferred vessel for serious beer drinkers. But a new Kickstarter-backed product believes it has found a compromise: Just cut the lid off the can.
