by Jason Toon

Breweries have traditionally spent a lot of time designing distinctive, elaborate labels, which is weird because it's not like people need a lot of encouragement to drink beer. Just look at that plain can Archie Bunker drank: he knew it's what's on the inside that matters, not the outside. Anyway, if you've spent a lot of time locked in a lonely stare with a vessel of suds, you'll have no trouble identifying the beers and brewers associated with these visual chasers. Congratulations?

Answers are here. Please post your guesses, speculations, or arguments below! But know this: the Trivial Eye is presented for public amusement and no prizes are offered other than that familiar feeling of aggravation that so much of your mind is occupied by useless trivia.

Question: who's got three thumbs and wants more Trivial Eye? Answer: you after a grotesquely botched surgery.
