Is it just me or is drinking beer out of large cans (500ml) dumber than drinking it out of smaller cans? I mean won't it just go flat before you finish it?

Isn't 500 ml around 17 oz? Seems to me you have to be a slow drinker for that quantity to go flat.

Reminds me of something. A local brewery had a special: 3 quart-sized bottles of suds for $1. Yeah, that was really cheap even back in 1962. That's 96 ozs. or the equivalent of 8 12oz bottles. So on the night of the senior prom, I guzzled my 3 qts. in 5 min. prior to driving to the prom. That's stupid even for an 18-year-old but the beer didn't go flat that night.

Perhaps not 100% flat, but warm and crappy.

It makes more sense to me to drink a smaller can (or glass) and just open a fresh cold one when the first can is finished.

An exception would be a stout dark beer. A stout beer's supposed to be served around room temperature, I guess, or just slightly chilled. So if it's in a tall can and loses the chill, it's not going to affect the flavour in a bad way.

I don't care for beer in cans so whatever size the typical bottle is, is what we drink. If we are at a sporting event and the option include a regular can and a larger can, I'll go with the larger can as it's usually a little less expensive overall. We'll share one larger can and go back for a second.

Typically, the regular cans are perfect.

I usually will get canned beer if I'm taking it to some event where you're allowed to bring adult beverages in but not in glass bottles, but if I have some at home in the fridge, I tend to chill a beer glass in the freezer for a bit, and then poor the beer into that. So, I'm usually able to avoid the warm, room temperature taste of canned beer.

When you think about it... there must be a certain logic behind why beverage companies chose this exact size for the typical beer/cola can.
