Fwiw, Conan talked about this during his monologue last night and said that prices would go up about 4 cents per can.

Yeah 10% a can is under a penny for raw material. So a bit more with markup. Not a big deal for a 6er so I dont really care. Really more impact to cases of cheap beer.

Whoa, dude. Didn't anyone tell you that beer isn't supposed to be fun? I assume you'll adjust future posts accordingly. :mrgreen:
