Ever crack open a can of Chief Oshkosh of Wisconsin, or sample Pabst's Big Cat Malt Liquor? Remember the original St. Pauli Girl, Tennent's bevy of lager lovelies, or Olde Frothingslosh ("the pale stale ale with the foam on the bottom")? Presented alphabetically by brand, the nearly 500 cans collected here come from thirty countries and range from the iconic to the obscure to the downright bizarre. From long-forgotten brews to classic brands that have changed their look but never gone out of style, Beer offers a peek into the last century of beer culture, exploring what we drank, how we drank it, and why we picked it off the shelf. While it may not be as refreshing as a frosty cold can of Bud, cracking open this book is certain to stimulate beer lovers and design fans alike.

Book Description CHRONICLE BOOKS, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A selection of approximately 500 of the best images from a 1,500+ antique beer can collection. The bulk of these are cans from the United States, though there are some UK and foreign beers in the mix, as well. Funny, nostalgic, and aesthetically fascinating, this is a time capsule that sheds light on beer drinking through the ages. Design, can shape, and marketing angles differ across decades, states, and countries, and offer hilarious and interesting glimpses into the evolution (or de-evolution) of beer culture. The ultimate beer table book, it will appeal to a wide range of guys and will also include captions for many of the cans (offering insight into particular brands or designs).
