Found: Vintage Beer Cans In Wall Of Lower Haight Apt.
Helped a good friend move out of what used to be my wife’s old apartment. Back behind the victorian moldings of their built-in bookcase were dozens of vintage beer cans—as if the former occupants would toss ‘em up and over after they’d knock ‘em back. A nice little time capsule of pull-top Lucky Lager, Miller High Life, Hamm’s, Rainier, and Olympia vintage beer cans.
Coincidentally, this was the day I had scored free tix to the Beer Shed at Eat Real Fest from Mario at Brewed For Thought. (Thanks anyway, man!)
“From the land of sky blue waters.”
Love the design of this Hamm’s tall boy.
Olympia … “It’s the Water.” Not to be confused with Hamm’s sky-blue variety.

And remember those Hamm’s “rippling” beer signs? Hypnotic.

hey, it’d be nice to see the holes on top from the tab-pulls.
Got pics of those. One was even still connected to the can.
They’re on my friend’s cam. Will add’em soon. Thanks!
That’s amazing. What a cool find! Who would have ever guessed those were hiding back there. Love the labels.
OMG, that second commercial. Were Americans seriously that cheesy? I mean, that trumpet music alone…
Hi there! Do you still have these cans, and if so, would you be interested in selling them? I’m a beer can collector and old cans are what I search for!
Hope to hear back via my email, cheers! – Mark R.

Drunk on Hairy Eyeball. Google searching for vintage Hamms. Of course the random image I clicked on was from The Umlaut!!!
