Canned beers are currently very in vogue, so it’s only natural that there’d be a book featuring them striking a pose.
Written by Russ Phillips of CraftCans.com, Canned! is a 208-page tome dedicated to the world of beer’s most beautiful aluminum shells and the heroes who design them. To show a preview of the goods, we asked Russ to pick his 10 all-time favorite designs. Then we got really thirsty.
Indeed Brewing Company Midnight Ryder American Black Ale
Design by Chuck U
"Minneapolis-based artist Chuck U flexed his creative abilities with this design. If this design doesn’t have you scratching your head a bit, I’m not sure what will… and that’s what makes it so great. A great example of using the entire can as canvas. Chuck U’s other designs for Indeed Brewing are equally impressive."
Tallgrass Brewing Company 8-Bit Pale Ale
Design by Neil Camera
"I didn’t play a ton of video games growing up, but I was a part of the Nintendo 8-bit generation. I love the rocket ship emblazoned with "Galaxy Hops", and the fact that this can has "three" sides to it. If you’ve never seen the YouTube video that went with the release of this beer, you should definitely check it out.”
