Vintage Beer Cans

There is a great set of vintage beer cans up on Flickr by Lance Wilson. Lance told the blog TheDieline that the cans are a “… portion of an extensive beer can collection (2000+ cans) containing cans from the past 70 years …”

Amazing how far the packaging and typography has come. Loving the tag lines too: “The beer with the million dollar flavor.”

Selections from Lance Wilson's collection of vintage beer cans.

    “Champagne Velvet”! Amazing. Sounds like something out of Boogie Nights.
    So happy to have rediscovered you after a long time — not sure where I went but I’m thrilled to bits to be back.

    I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours lately, but I by no
    means found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made
    excellent content material as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more useful than ever before.
