Topless Beer cans are coming

The Atlantic is reporting that a US company has launched a topless beer can.


Yesterday, members of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe calling for a “topless jihad” in support of Tunisian activist Amina Tyler. Meanwhile Pennsylvania-based brewing company Sly Fox is doing something also called “topless” but involving fewer militant arrests. It’s the first American brewery to use this sort of can, which was first introduced at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, according to Jim Galligan at Beer & Whiskey Brothers.  

Advocates of this model talk about the enhanced aromatic experience. I also imagine more opportunities for people to spill beer on eachother. At least in movies, that always leads to an exciting fight or romance. Like the craft beer culture that’s embracing it, this design is all about human connection.

    A topless jihad and even more accessible beer – sounds like we have the basic ingredients for a Las Vegas Hooters Hotel pool-side cabana party!

    The faggers will love this, no more struggling finding that little hole in an alcoholic haze.

      yeah, great ash tray eh?

    That’s a good idea. Hands up if you have picked up a can and taken a swig without looking, and the hole is in the wrong place and you tip piss down your front.
    Problem solved.

    • Never in the dark…..

      Don’t know what you’re talking about. Besides, she wasn’t even looking.

  • looks great. cant wait.

  • Fond memories. It really is a good idea – Sapporo did this in the UK years ago, elegant swoopy cans, widening slightly towards the top, with a removeable whole-lid. Opened, the beer could be drunk at ease, sans slurping and battling with foam etc. All good, until the mindless fascists at ElfinSafety considered we’d obviously all repeatedly slash our own faces to ribbons, either on the removed lid, which would double as a handy weapon, natch’ or hack off our tongues on the razor sharp inside lip of the can, and they were pulled from the shelves. End of. Fucking shame.

    Who cares about the beer cans, when is the topless Jihad coming to NZ again?????? Our “feminists” are soo out of touch aren’t they?

    How the fuck is that any use in my drink holder while having my sitting in traffic beer on the way home. Cars gonna smell like a brewery FFS! Nope..don’t want it. And anyone that misses their mouth out of a can has had their limit anyway.
