Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

27 May 2009

Beer! You love it. We love it. Show me a man, woman or child who doesn't enjoy pouring seven pints of ale down their throat and starting a fight about that thing somebody said somewhere, and I'll show you a bare-faced liar.

It's no wonder that beer can cure flu or re-grow severed limbs from bleeding stumps, it's simply that amazing. And girls like boys who drink it, and boys love girls who drink it, especially when they choose a big manly pint glass meant for men.

Those are the facts as we understand them, especially after drinking it, but what do we really know about beer? WebUrbanist has got news for you - a potted history of the beer can. It takes you way back to the beginning of the 20th Century, when manufacturers worried over how they could contain beer in an airtight capsule without it exploding, to how Cordell Brand beer cans received complaints from animal rights groups after using the winning strapline "Even The Cat Enjoys It!!!".

Plus there are lots of pretty pictures of elderly beer cans, proving that gentrification of branding has made the whole world a lot duller. Except when you drink beer, of course. Go on, have a pint right now.
