Most interesting Beer Can't I've seen in a while....

Not sure exactly how to describe this one. Obviously this is an advertising piece....but I've never seen anything like it before. It folds out into any number of interesting presentations. Good luck getting your head around this one! :-)

Thanks for thinking of me! Looks like a real beer can though....with just a bun wrapped around it. The "beer can't" philosophy instructs it's minions that the can can't be an actual beer can that could have ever held beer.....just something that looks like a beer can.....but keep those items coming through! (Or...is it possible that's not a real can?)

Does this category include novelty paper-label cans, like these?

Thanks for asking! In my definition of Beer Can'ts.....I've kinda defined it as:
  • Tries to look like an actual Beer Can
  • Can not be a actual Beer Can
  • Must be a functional item
  • Must be mostly a beer can't, not part of a larger thing

Of the items you pictured, the Brew 747 doesn't look like an actual beer can that was ever sold....it's a one-off tshirt thing from United Airlines I believe. The other is an actual beer can. I have a lot more chit chat about this on my Beer Can'ts website here:

https://beercants.com/about

Thanks again for the interest!
