For their book Beer: A Genuine Collection of Cans ($13), authors Dan Becker and Lance Wilson painstakingly logged and photographed nearly 500 beer cans. Sourced from thirty countries the book spans obscure, forgotten, and stalwart brews. Some you’ll recognize. Some you won’t. If you’re itching to see the beer sooner than later though, 163 of the photographs are posted on flickr, which we’ve embedded right after the jump.

Viewfinder is a series of captivating photos taken by the GP crew, culled from the web, dug out of our archives, or submitted by readers.
