Beer Cans and Bottles

Recommended Posts

I thought this evolution of Miller Lite cans was pretty interesting.

I like the 70s/80s/Current design the best. 

A lot of mass produced beer cans are going back to the basics after the wild designs of the 2000s.

Bud Light just released their new design fairly recently.

Looks pretty sharp, although I love these old cans on purely nostalgic reasons

That's a lot of effort for canned polluted water. 

 

But I will say the 2014 version does have a nice balance of old + new.

Molson Canadian cans have always had a nice look to them. Especially lately with the retro look.

Reminds me of when Anheuser-Busch used to can water. DEF5F838-A050-4A0E-9ED3-B276048B2F4D-550-000000313AC9B8F7.jpeg.db7aeb66a95de621c6bbcc50246c6134.jpeg

 

In fact when looking for this pic, I learned that they donated a bunch of canned water to hurricane victims.

The first time I ever heard of canned water it really baffled me. It makes a lot of sense thought.

Someone on a local memories Facebook group had a pictured of canned water from many many decades ago.
from CP (Canadian Pacific) Railway.

I remember them also doing this in the St. Louis area when the Mississippi flooded in the early 90's. A-B is (was?) a good company, especially in St. Louis.

I have a wall in my man cave of a collection of cool looking beer cans and some bottles. I can post some photos of a few cool ones some time.
