    Square Beer Bottles

    It's still in the concept phase, but how would you feel if beer bottles head in this direction? It would certainly make it easier to pack, ship, and store beers. Not sure about drinking from one though...

    As someone who likes to drink beer from a glass, I could get behind this. Would save a ton of fridge space.

    I love recycling, and those bottles have a ton of building potential. A little mortar and they turn into legos!

    I don't know, I think it would be awkward to drink from a glass brick, and could easily slip out of your fingers.

    I would prefer my beer in a Capri-Sun type pouch complete with a straw for piercing. I like to stab.

    Great way to test that theory that drinking beer through a straw gets you buzzed more quickly.

    Love this idea. I agree that it would suit my fridge and save me space.

    Pretty cool. Not a Heineken fan - but I would buy once for the novelty

    You could bunker a lot of whiskey in a small space if it came in these bottles.

    Agree that these could be interesting as building blocks. I can see a wall made of various colored beer cubes with LED lights in them.

    This is a very strange world we live in! I wish we could go back to the old cans with the pull rings for a bit of nostalgia.

    Go all the way back to cans with crown caps or where you had to use a church key to open the can. Both before my time
