Join us and others in this once-a-year toast to the beer can with these "beery" interesting Tweets.
The beer can was celebrated January 24 on Twitter with historical Bud and Miller designs, a house of cans, a can pinhole camera, a tattoo, several dog tales, and more.

Did you know January 24 was Beer Can Appreciation Day?

It became apparent after seeing Twitter posts tagged as #BeerCanAppreciationDay, a stream that flowed like beer at an old-fashioned Octoberfest in Munich throughout the day.

No worries if you missed the celebration, it looks like the “party” is still going on today. Even better, we've assembled for your convenience a varied collection of Tweets that got our attention.

First off is how it all started.

This sets the tone.

A beer can house begs the question: Is it recyclable?

Bud designs through the years.

And a Miller brew rearview review.

Cans ingeniously reused as pinhole cameras.

Our own humble throwback contribution is doggone touching.

It's a trend, and a good one.

Some believe beer has restorative powers…

A party crasher from ‘76.

A beer can canyon.

Sound advice from a beer can recycler.

Finally, you probably weren't expecting this one.

For another round, you’ll find a whole lot more in this Twitter feed
