Cans versus bottles
« on: February 17, 2010, 09:33:14 AM »
Let's start a campaign to educate disc golfers about the benefits of drinking canned beer on the course. I know we all love the quality brews that come in bottles but the problem glass bottles present in our parks isn't worth it. Many high quality beers are now available in cans. So if you're like me and prefer a micro-brew or other high quality beer to the standard domestic fare found in cans seek it out, it is available. I have been buying Annie's Amber Ale from the High Noon Saloon and Brewery in Leavenworth lately. It's very tasty and comes in cans. They say it's from Cansas....  Also, Heineken is available in cans as well as aluminum bottles of Boulevard Wheat and I recently purchased a six-pack of 16oz cans of Red Stripe (Hooray Beer!).

If you know of a tasty brew others might like that is available in cans post it here. Of course the standard cans of Bud, Miller, etc... hit the spot on a hot day just as well, but for the more discriminating palate a list of more exotic canned beer might be just the thing to lessen the impact of bottles on our courses. Think about it and share your canned favorites below.....

fat tire is available in cans, but alas Bells does not go into aluminum......sad.....sad.... :'(

Those Boulevard Wheat bottles are cool.  Guiness is available in cans as well, make your own thunder cloud by getting a biodegrable plastic cup as well!

One could keep the bottles off the course by pouring the contents into a nice portable reusable container too. Then all the bottles would be in one place at #1 and easier to manage. Just a thought....

I am trying to keep bottles out of the equation.....geesh! ;D

Although my first thought was keep the empties in teh cooler, and drown the bottle in the cup so that the park people have no reason to ask me what I am drinking......or race home to a fridge full of my favorite......but that really only works with me at Cliff and Blue Valley

Smithville is going to only have two rules in concern of alcohol...besides the obvious ones-

1. Absolutely NO alcoholic beverages in the beach area.

2. And NO glass bottles in the park.

Break either one of these rules and face possible expulsion from the park.

I used to go to a private swimming hole near Lexington years ago and since they were private and didn't allow bottles they asked to look in coolers before you could come in. We got in the habit right away of buying only canned beer for that trip. Sounds like something similar happening at Smithville.

Rolling Rock is available in cans. I also used to be able to find Molson Canadian in cans but that's been a while back.

So you're saying if I have glass I could get canned  ??? Isn't that the whole idea  ???

Speaking of getting canned -- I better get back to work...

That is a great policy for the park in Smithville Dan. That should be the policy at all the public parks.

Here's a couple more cans I enjoy:

Boddingtons English Cream Ale
Jungle Joose (assorted flavors, 9.9% ABV) :D
Wexford Irish Ale
Caldera Amber Ale and IPA
Corona Extra

That is a great policy for the park in Smithville Dan. That should be the policy at all the public parks.

No alcohol and bottles is the policy for most any park in the US. The issue is the local man/woman power to enforce it.
I have been on many courses in many other cities and usually check with a local player. Cans are usually tolerated, but you should keep them contained in your bag, but technically even that is in violation. A cooler is a dead giveaway and could lead to inspection, confiscation, fines or arrest.

Most local enforcement is fairly tolerant as they see the disc golf community help drive out the undesirable.
Some are more bored and feel warranted to enforce, i.e Shawnee Mission Park


Be not paranoid, but be aware.

PS: Yes we should can CD, he has a full body with a hint of frothiness. But then again, nobody would buy him.

cans also keep your beer colder, which we all want on a hot summer day!

I always prefer drinking a BPA (Boulevard Pale Ale), which you can unfortuantley only purchase in bottles, but I have been turned on to drinking yard beer (PBR and Busch are my favs) on the course.
