Stubby ring pulls pulled

The Sunday Times - - NEWS -

CARL­TON Dry will bring back stubby twist tops after its new ring-pull cap caused cus­tomer fury.

Froth­ing mad beer drinkers have com­plained about the re­design, with some re­port­ing suf­fer­ing fin­ger cuts.

Carl­ton Dry has now apol­o­gised, say­ing the twist tops will re­turn to the mar­ket in March.

“We’ve lis­tened to our con­sumers and it’s clear they pre­fer open­ing their beer the more tra­di­tional way,” Carl­ton Dry brand di­rec­tor Brian Phan said. “So we’re go­ing back to twist tops. It wasn’t bro­ken and we shouldn’t have tried to fix it.”

The about-face comes less than three months after the ring pulls were launched in Oc­to­ber.
