It’s not every day one gets to sleep in a beer can.

May Ninkasi, the tutelary Sumerian Goddess of Beer, bless you a several gallons of times. Gallons of times? May sound incredible, unnatural and unmeasurable. To say the least, illogical too. Well, let us justify first the several gallons of times. On a lighter vein or a serious note, we would like to draw a parallel with light years so much that the time taken for consuming a gallon of beer is a gallon time. 😉

If the cans were where you had to dwell at a music festival? Would you be up for it?

How would it be if the biggest beer manufacturer set up giant room-sized beer cans instead of tents at a music festival? Would you be able to live in the giant cans of beer? At the Skanderborg Festival aka Smukfest, the organizers replaced tents with giant beer cans and the patrons absolutely loved it. It’s not every day one gets to sleep in a beer can. The only downside to this is that the can isn’t filled with beer 🙂

The organizers of the Skanderborg Festival have come up with this novel idea and fitted the beer cans with amenities like a double bed, tables, quilts, mirrors, chairs and a loft area too. This is something that the organizers of the Oktoberfest in India should think about too. People here would love novelty. After all, variety is the spice of life. The Skanderborg Festivals happens every year in the second week of August and the first fest happened in 1980 with 7 bands and 600 spectators.

You may have heard or read a thousand times or more, the cliche of opening a ‘can of worms’. Let us relate our mankind and kind women to this cliche. What if one opens a can of worms or a can of humans. You heard  it right. What if you come out of the cans, when they are opened.
