The Aleheads airwaves have been abuzz with the revelation that Oskar Blues will soon be adding 16-ounce cans to their product line. I, for one, can’t WAIT to shotgun a four-pack of Ten FIDY and then lie down on the ground and take a long, drool-filled nap. Alas, the Aleheads always find someone to argue about even the most exciting beer news. In this case, our disagreement relates to terminology. Kid Carboy assures us that 16-ounce cans should only be referred to as “pounders”. Slouch Sixpack believes that “tallboy” is the correct nomenclature. The interwebs, which generally determines such debates in a matter of milliseconds seems strangely ambiguous as to the proper term. So I’m relying on Alehead Nation to solve this conundrum for us.
What say you, drinkers of larger-than-average craft cans? What do you call your 16-ouncer?
