Aluminum Beer Cans in Dusseldorf

It seems Germans have had problems in cities like Düsseldorf  from broken glass from bottles dumped by partygoers,.

So Düsseldorf’s Füchschen brewery recently launched in 33-cL aluminum cans for the start of their carnival season. Check out the striking black aluminum cans.  Not exactly carnival colors, if you ask me.  I don’t think they’d win awards for aluminum can decoration.

But these are unbreakable aluminum cans and will help the Germans avoid the unavoidable mess and cleanup associated with broken glass bottles.

Personally, I think they would have done better by using aluminum bottles.

But at least, they’re doing the green thing.  And people at the carnival can keep their beers cooler longer.

Here’s a video of the Dusseldorf 2012 carnival.  Who says the Germans don’t have fun?
