Nice cans

Some of your favorite beers may be getting a makeover. After 25 years, Ska Brewing has announced an exterior refresh to its line of canned beer, including Modus Hoperandi, Modus Mandarina, True Blonde, Rue B. Soho and Pink Vapor Stew.

Reflecting the brand’s comic book roots, the new cans will be in line with current designs for Ska’s newer flavors, including its Hazy IPA and hard seltzers (Ska Claws? Skaltzer?) While retaining the signature comic book skeleton of yore, the new designs will also feature bright colors; popping artwork, like the “blamo” (just like it sounds); and Ska’s signature black-and-white checkerboard stripe.

The Bodo beer overlords hope the new designs will help create a more consistent and identifiable look across all its beloved brands.

The brewery will announce more new can artwork updates in coming months.

It’s a Main Avenue landmark. For the past 75 years, when most people drive past the squat, grey-stone building along the shore of the Animas River, they recognize it as “the VFW.” What most people don’t see, though – unless they’re a veteran or family of a veteran – is the multi-generational legacy of camaraderie, caring and community that thrives inside. Or the efforts under way to keep that legacy alive for a new and growing generation of veterans.
