Default You Know Friday Evenings Not Going To Go Well......

.......when you go out to the patio and pop your 5 litre tin of bitter (about 9 pints in real money) and this happens.........

I'll stick to Coke I suppose.

I would just put a straw in the top.

Happy days

I've tried beating a hole in the top of these things with a hammer and chisel, drilling, electric saw doesn't work (thinking of them as herb pots).
Gave up in the end, filled a wheelie bin with the things.
So there went my excuse for buying them.
They require too much effort and coordination any way, pull this, twist that - the pull the tap out and bend it down to pour version is better, far easier on the thumbs - see what you mean though, drill a hole, stick a brolly and a straw in the top and you've got a Glasgae cocktail?

Simple answer:

Drink Old Speckled Hen with a spoon.

Fabulous beer, enjoy what's left of it.

Regards.

Well, you should be drinking our local drop of purge anyway. Plain old cap, no fancy stuff.

8%? Drink some of that and you'd never pull it together enough to get the cap back on.

I discovered some Mexican / Texan soft drink called "sotol" a little while ago, got a bottle for an American mate who was visiting.
Old school technology that one - a wooden bung shoved in the bottle.
Got myself and him T-shirts too as it was 4th July.

I sent a photo of the spillage to a mate, a Speckled Hen afficienado living a couple of miles away.
I knew when he'd received the SMS by the anguished wail drifting across on the breeze
