How To Drink From a Bag o' Brew

In case you missed the post from the other day, bags of brew are all the rage in China these days.  For seventy two US cents, you can knock back 5 beers in a Chris Daly disapproved receptacle.  Since I know you all were curious how the hell you drank from these, you’re supposed to impale your beer with a straw and share with friends.  Beyond the style points, the real benefit of this setup is that you have a place to put your vomit in afterwards.  Bag o’ Brew: where have you been all my life?

Anyways, since this isn’t a blog about China, you can follow all the oriental action on the other blog that I otherwise never have a reason to update and no one reads in general.

P.S. – When I get back to the Mission, I want to open a bar that only serves beer in plastic bags.  Good idea / bad idea?

    I’m just not seeing a Budweiser commercial maker going anywhere near this.

    So wrong. How are you supposed to taste it if you can’t smell it? This just opens things up to way too many practical jokes involving pee.

    Hah. Mexico has been doing this for ages. I remember being 8 (18years ago) with my bag of soda and straw and my dad his bag of beer.
