99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall….Take One Down, Pass It Around
99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer. Take one down, pass it around….
If you've been drinking beer for a while, you know that bottles mean quality...or meant quality. If you've been drinking beer recently, you probably understand that cans are actually a brilliant container for beer.
Still, we owe the can's popularity to the history of the bottle. Although brewers originally used glass to contain their precious liquid, they quickly noticed that light began to spoil the beer. Brown and green bottles emerged as a way to avoid these skunky or "lightstruck" effects. And eventually, cans eliminated that problem all together.
Now, when you drink beer out of the bottle you're tasting a bit of history. And you can give the bottle its due with the 99 Bottles badge.
