I have a can of local craft brew from a smallish brewery that has some "give" when I squeeze it. According to the can it was canned about 1 month ago. Other cans in the six pack feel normal and taste great. I can't see any evidence of leaking.

Is this normal and safe to drink or should I just toss it? If I open it and it has no carbonation then there's obviously no point in even trying to drink it.

1 Answer 1


if it is local brew may I suggest sending a message to the brewer and asked about it. for any more advice, I do think it is still good but if you want to be safe just message them for why this 1 can feels so light.
