What Are the Best Looking Beer Cans in America?
ad week ^ | 7-3-2014 | David Griner

The can comeback, led by brands like Ska Brewing, Oskar Blues and New Belgium, has opened up a 360-degree canvas for label designers typically restricted to the few stickers on a beer bottle.

Thrillest has (with the help of CraftCans.com guru and Canned! author Russ Phillips) created a handy gallery of its picks for the "10 coolest-looking beer cans in America." And while I was glad to see a few of my personal favorites on the list (including my friends and neighbors at Good People Brewing in Birmingham, Alabama), I feel like they left off a few brews that are practically works of art.

It’s not the alcohol that causes the problems. It’s the operator of the alcohol.

A lot of the micro-breweries really put effort into the art work. My wife cuts them up and uses the pieces to make art.

There was one I really liked. It had a man and a woman seated at a small table facing each other. However, they looked very serious, as if they were discussing how to spend an in-laws' will or something. Tollingers or something like that.

Of ones I can remember, give me good old Reingold, the Dry Beer!

Whoaaaaa!!!!! Old Forhingslosh - haven’t heard that mentioned in decades.

My understanding is it was a special derivitive of Iron City filtered through miles of virgin slag heaps.
