Well, it seems that it’s a sad time for light hikers. Heineken has apparently discontinued the long-favored 24 oz mini keg so loved by hikers around the world for making ultralight cooking pots. Comparing my Backcountry.com 700 titanium pot with the Heineken which has a comparable capacity the savings is about 3 oz (4.1 oz vs 1.4 respectively).
Hikers across the country are scouring their local liquor stores trying to buy out the last stock. On Friday I picked up 10 cans and today I scored another 13 buying every can they had. Tonight I’ll crank up the can opener and future pots will be born. 🙂
