Canvention, 1980

And here we have a 38-year-old beer can.


In October of 1980, the Fox Valley Beer Can Collectors held their 1st “Canvention” at Herbie’s Acee Deucee on Oregon Street in Oshkosh.

Their commemorative beer can mashes up the old logos of Chief Oshkosh, Peoples, and Appleton’s Adler Brau. At the time, all three of those brands had been defunct for almost a decade.

The beer inside that can was brewed by Walter Brewing Company of Eau Claire. And I'm betting it was nowhere near as memorable as the can it came in.
