Kind of lost focus here. Clean the fridge or drink beer, seems like a no brainer.

If I remember correctly I used one of those magic erasers...They clean a lot of stuff up really well.

Except maybe one, which is my favorite beer brewed in Minnesota.

Cool

So I went and got some Vim and after a lot of scrubbing with a light scouring pad and VIM it is now about 90% cleaner.Thanks for the suggestions.

last trip out I noticed it is quite a lot cooler in the fridge just under the freezer so the light bulbs went off and I laid a can on it's side just under the freezer in front of the metal fins,thinking I would have a nice cold one when I got there.But, live and learn I guess,all the bouncing around on the gravel road made that can bounce around in the fridge and the metal fins under the freezer eventually pocked a few holes in my can,spraying it all over and it ran to the bottom of the fridge and leaked out onto the floor .So won't do that again.

Let's see. Red Racer IPA, which won the top award in Canada for pale ale, comes in cans. Okanagan Spring Pale Ale ( my milk ) comes in cans. And, others.

Perhaps aluminum cans haven't reached Alberta?

Yeah, a lot of good microbrews are coming in cans now. A bit disappointing...

I don't think Red Racer isn't a pale ale, is it not dark? It is good, I like it, though a bit heavy on the hops. As long as canned beer is poured into a glass, it does taste a bit better. Still, MOST top beers are only (or mostly) available in bottles.

I have tried a good bunch of the top three winners in many of these categories. LOTS of great beer brewed these days.
Canadian Brewing Awards

I digress, back to the OP's topic. Glad to hear you got your fridge cleaned fairly good. Glad too you won't be trying your beer wasting trick again either.

It wasn't that long ago that people held their nose at screw cap and composite cork wine bottles. And then it was proved the wine fared better than with natural corks - less spoilage.
Cans are light, easier to transport ( saving fuel ), keep the light off the beer, chill quickly.
So being green , I choose cans.

Red Racer sells several different beers.
