Carlsberg Solved the Six-Pack Packaging Problem with Glue

Sadly glue doesn't do well in the heat and humidity here in Florida.....

I'm skeptical. The glue would have to be strong enough so if the beer gets banged around, the cans do not come apart. Still, the glue would have to be weak enough to make it easy for the consumer to grab a single can. I would like to see this face to face but the article says they are not doing this in America yet.

Keith brings up a good point regarding temperature too. How consistent is the glue between 0 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit?
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

Who wants to hold onto a strip of glue while drinking from their can on a hot day?
