It is 80 years since beer started being sold in cans. To mark the birthday celebrations we rounded up some of the most striking beer can designs available nowadays. And if beer cans really are your cup of tea, check out the remarkable beer can museum in Massachusetts.

Don’t be deceived by these rather plainly designed cans – the patterns have enough variety in their checks and stripes to deck out a rather well dressed gentleman.

This old school design goes back to the original beer cans which could only be opened by stabbing a hole in them with a “churchkey”.
