Churchkey Can Co. Brings Back The Flat Top Steel Can

Churchkey Can Co.

Churchkey Can Co. is a new brewery out of Seattle that’s backed by Adrian Grenier (yes, that Adrian Grenier) and Justin Hawkins.

Their goal is to return beer to a simpler time, where simpler tools and a stronger connection to the artisans and craftsmen behind each brew turned each interaction with a beer into an experience.

How so?

By reviving the flat top steel beer can, which hasn’t been used in more than 50 years.

The story of the flat top beer can, which must be opened with a churchly, goes back to 1935 when the first flat top cans were introduced. Canned beer was an immediate success and others quickly joined the marketplace with this versatile packaging. Beer lovers could now enjoy their favorite brews anywhere and with anyone. The flat top can remained a standard until the pull-tab came to market in the mid-1960s. By the mid-1970s, the flat top can was all but a memory.

If you don’t have a churchkey, don’t worry, because each six-pack is going to include one just in case. (What, you don’t have yours lying around from the ’50s?)

The beer is brand new, so they haven’t even updated their list of locations to help you find it yet, but keep an eye out, because if Avion Tequila is any indication, this thing will be all over the map in no time.

The 6 Packer is a six-pack carrier made from laser cut plywood that’s perfect for carrying around six of your favorite homebrews.

It’s also open source, with plans available for download through Thingverse, allowing you to customize the material thickness, bottle diameter, fastener size, hand grips, and more.

BeerSavers Keep Beer Bottles Safe And Fresh

BeerSavers

If you’ve ever opened a beer, but then realized you needed to save it for later, or if you’ve ever gone to a party and lost track of which beer was yours (aka the wounded soldier) then the BeerSavers bottle caps may be just what you’ve been looking for.

BeerSavers are bottle caps made from food-safe silicone that fit over the mouth of a beer bottle, and are designed to keep your beer fresh after opening, and to help differentiate your beer from others.

They come in a multi-colored six pack, so each person can have their own color, and are both dishwasher safe and reusable.

Plus, for you homebrewers out there, you can use BeerSavers to keep your bottles clean and sterile before bottling.
