Some 40s in Canada are being phased out and replaced with 32oz bottles. Don’t panic – not all Canadian 40oz brands are in jeopardy! To put it simply, it appears that the brands that were previously available in clear wide mouth 1.18 L bottles (the Pabst brands) are now being replaced with brown small mouth 946 ml bottles. Fortunately, the majority of Canadian 40oz brands (Molson & Carling) come in brown wide mouth bottles and remain unaffected by the other company’s decision.
It’s a sad time for those whole like their bières out of really big bottles and now have to settle for kinda big bottles. One can only hope that the brewery sees a decline in sales and brings back the 1.18 litre bottles!
