4 MORE Breweries That Are Making Gorgeous Cans

About a week ago I wrote up a blog post highlighting some breweries that were making some truly badass canned beer. A lot of readers were quick to point out that I missed out on a few breweries that were also taking part in the canning revolution. I knew that another post was in order.

Without further ado, here are 4 MORE breweries that are making gorgeous cans!


Half Acre Beer Company – Chicago, IL

Ok, ok. I get it. Half Acre makes some really, really, ridiculously good looking cans. This was easily the most mentioned brewery that fans thought I missed.

I have to blame pure ignorance on forgetting about these guys on the first go-round. This is the first time that I have heard of their brewery. Anyways, their unique take on beer can art is not to be missed. I’m particularly fond of their Daisy Cutter Pale Ale can (which also has a pretty great rating on BA.


Fort George Brewery – Astoria, OR

Although Fort George’s cans aren’t quite pushing the artistic limits like some other breweries out there, I can still appreciate their simplicity and continuity.

Unfortunately for us over on the east coast, Fort George’s distribution is limited to the Northwest. Anybody want to swap some beer via snail mail?


Tallgrass Brewing Co. – Manhattan, KS

 

I’ll admit that when I first saw these cans from Tallgrass Brewing, I was actually a little put off. To me, they just didn’t feel like beer cans.

But after giving it a little bit more thought, I realized that a little creativity and out-of-the-box thinking is exactly what the craft beer canning movement is all about. Sure their Velvet Rooster may look (and sound) like some sort of libido-boosting energy drink, but so what. Beer should be fun and it looks like the crew over at Tallgrass is having a blast with their designs.


Intuition Ale Works – Jacksonville, FL

These amazing cans from Intuition Ale Works are such a great example of what can be done with clean design, appropriate typography, and a simple color palette.

Admittedly, I haven’t gotten the chance to try any of Intuition’s beers. But if the stuff on the inside was made with the same care as the stuff on the outside, I can only imagine that it’s top notch. Huge props to the fine folks over at Intuition Ale Works!


Well, what did I miss this time? Leave a comment and let me know! Stay hoppy.
