And if you’re not a Miller, grab your friends who are and bring them to one of our events.”

The Spin Tab concept is a simple improvement based on current can packaging that identifies one consumer’s drink from another. Each beverage can is provided with a color ring painted on the top and the consumers can point to their favorite color by spinning the tab. The selected color can be seen through the hole in the top of the tab and provide distinction between different drinks at parties and at bars. Designer Zhongren Zhang says the ring can be extended to different designs including mood icons, nations or rival team logos.

Advertising 101: Manly is Hard to Portray

We’ve all laughed at one or two American beer commercials that ran during the superbowl in our years of existence. 

What we thought was a great idea, what we thought was manly, fuck, what we thought was a great beer commercial has just been halted. 

Publicis Mojo of Australia just fucked everything up in the most incredible way. I’ll have to say this though: Publicis needs to up their web game. All of their child agencies have terrible sites. 

But let’s let that one go and replay this shit a few times.

New idea for Sixpack: Beer + Music + Recipes  
 This is a “house party in a box,” according to Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione. That means that with a six-pack of the 750mL beer, you also get a vinyl record with tunes from Deltron 3030, and five beer-inspired recipes from the likes of Mario Batali, David Chang and more.
