Bitter American: The Beer Cans America Needs Right Now

The art on 21st Century Amendment Brewery’s cans leans heavily on the icons of Americana—the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, Washington crossing the Potomac River…But the artwork feels more playful than full-on patriotic, much to its benefit. After all, if there’s one thing all beer-lovers should celebrate, it’s when the 21st Amendment was added to the Constitution in 1933 to repeal prohibition. To execute the first batch of graphics, the San Fran-based brewery worked with a handful illustrators (Joe Wilson, Jon Contino, and Kim Seilbeck), and TBD, a Bend, Oregon-based agency (the same who worked on the great graphic of Odell Brewing). And while TBD closed shop a few years back, 21st Century Amendment’s cans continue to stand out on the craft beer shelves. Here are a handful we absolutely adore.
