So I recently found out that Heineken is phasing out the Keg Can, and instead changing all their 24oz sized beers into the straight cylinder fosters style can (without the reinforced bands that we love on the keg). I wrote this post on another thread earlier, but I figure it's related to this thread as well
"wow, so I didn't realize that they did a complete change over to Foster's style plain can. I went over to the largest liquor store in my area and asked if they had any of the "keg" style cans in stock and the guy mentioned that they were just phased out. That said, I did manage to grab some at another smaller liquor store nearby. So they are definitely out there, but are more or less on the brink of extinction. While I don't usually encourage hording...now would be the appropriate time to do so."
Conspiracy theory (the internet) suggests a combination of BPA scare/liability/and Heineken finding out that us gram nerds love to cook stuff in their cans. But who knows
