Problems with the Heineken suitcase

steve h. Jul 26, 2011 02:20 PM

It bursts! Dozens of cans cascading out of the fridge onto the floor! Oh, the horror!

I used to be a big fan of the 24-can cardboard suitcase. It fit into the fridge and fed single cans out of a hatch at the bottom of the narrow side. Then things went wrong.

Just when Heineken introduced their new cans, something went awry with the cardboard suitcase manufacturing. Seems the integrity of the vertical seam above the dispensing hole went cheap leading to calamitous (sometimes hilarious) failure.

I've had it happen three times now. I'm out.

    I find if you call customer service and complain [especially if you lost beer due to bursting], you will get compensated for your loss.
