Man relives college life with beer-tossing fridge

An engineering graduate has built a contraption to help remind him of campus life: a refrigerator that can toss a can of beer to his couch with the click of a remote control.

A genius!  Grin Not so sure whether the bottle throwing version is such a good idea.

LOL. I think I'd pass on a bottle tossing version, however.

The real question is probably "can you catch them safely?"

Hear, hear!  Cans are no way to treat any beer worth drinking!

Now that you mention it, when was the last time you saw a beer worth drinking that came in a can?

Guinness does come in cans, and there are a few other better-quality beers.  It's not all Miller and Coors.

(Of course, the very best still comes in bottles only.  But there's some very drinkable stuff that does in cans.)

Last time I got a Guiness it came in a can (they didn't have anything better).  And they served it by upending the can in a glass and leaving the can in there while the glass filled.  I told the server to never give it to me that way again unless she KNEW that can had been cleaned before hand.  I KNOW where my bottles of beer have been, but where has that can been stored and what (rodent or insect or dust) has gotten on it?Huh?  Total gross out for me.  But I have way too much imagination for my own good.

While Star is correct that some quite respectable beers are put in cans, it's been a while since I've seen one, since I try not to look.
