I bet 90% of those cans say Lite/Light on them, too.

At my supermarket, at least 90% of the beer shelf if occupied by "Coobudiller" (Coors/Bud/Miller), and at least 95% of that is light. When somebody offers me a light beer, I politely decline. I won't even drink it if it's free.

The only ones leaving cans on my place are riding...horses. I don't appreciate it any better because of that, but I just found out a few days ago where they are coming from.

I have them gathered up in a bag...it'll be in their front yard soon.

Nature, like Miamonides said, is mainly a good place to throw beer cans on Sunday afternoons.

Well, microbrews tend to come in bottles...

Seriously, though, these are cans being thrown out of cars. So, presumably, people are drinking while in the car. Now, normally, one can drink while at places out side of the car (house, yard, restuarant, bar). Therefore, those drinking in the car feel the need to drink at all times. Life would be too strange and surreal to not have a beer in hand. Therefore, one would suppose it would get waaaay to expensive to not drink cheap beer in a can.

Regardless of the brand, my hatred of people that toss their beer cans ,trash is huge.

Let me explain. Every day I walk my Siberian Huskies on a rural road where I live. It is my "special" time where I reflect,exercise, and appreciate the scenery and sky.

Every day I see new trash, beer cans and bottles , and wonder why are people so ignorant. I have picked up the litter, but in two days , the same amount is back.

There is an "open container" law in Virginia that pertains to open alcoholic drinks, it should be repealed.

I like Vermont every can nearly is 5 cents and whiskey bottles are 15 cents! Also it takes 30 cans to make a pound.

It blows my mind that there are so many people who litter. The main road leading to my neighborhood is a dumping ground for beer cans, potato chip bags, water bottles, cigarette butts, you name it. Every week I walk up and down the road with a large industrial garbage bag picking up after inconsiderate people who can't seem to understand that the road side is not their personal landfill. I'm not sure the brand of beer one drinks, whether a trendy microbrew or a bud light is indictative of an offender.

I'll bet you even chase down your beer with a swig of Johnny Walker Blue.

Cheap beer cans are littering the roads because underage kids are using their cars as drinking establishments. Once they start drinking in bars they leave their empty's in the bar.

Another thing, it's only beginners who drink lite beers, real men drink imported dark beer.

well, don't know about that. I like good wine, good scotch, bourbon, vodka but have never cared for the majority of microbrews or dark stouts, etc. too many years drinking cheap lite beer to cultivate a taste for anything heavier I guess.
