In beer, as in all things, we have a fondness for the past.

So we were glad to run across this set of old school blue-collar beer cans, dug up from flickr by a few diligent design-heads. Most of them are discolored, misshapen, and generally corroded to the point of collapse, but we don’t mind too much. It’s amazing to see what a beer looked like 70 years ago.

Anyone who happens to be in the design business should take notes: this is what beer cans should look like.
