Beer-drinkers love a good debate. Television commercials may have us all believing that uproarious arguments break out all the time over whether a particular beer tastes great or is less filling, but in reality spirited debates occur over more important questions. Like if beer is better from a can or from a bottle. Usually, the majority of people tend to side in favor of bottles, but there are some ways in which bottles just can't stand up to cans.

The Takara Tomy Beer Hour Beer Can Dispenser Foam Head Maker attaches to a regular can of beer and opens new horizons for good-natured debates. The contraption transforms beer poured out of a can into something more resembling that which comes out of a tap. However, it's not compressed gas that is doing the trick here; instead, the magic of a nice, foamy head is delivered with a flick of a switch.

At first it appears that it's a fancy handle that might for some reason facilitate pouring beer from a can, but then the device reveals its purpose while the last couple of ounces are poured. An integrated high-speed stirring mechanism lurking inside mixes up the beer as it is being poured. To keep the beer from resembling that from a can that had been shaken up, the effect only happens when activated via the well-placed switch. And for those who appreciate a good debate, get ready to add "more aerated" to the list.
