The Churchkey Can Co., founded by Entourage actor Adrian Grenier and former Nike designer Justin Hawkins, has just canned its first batch of Pilsner-style craft beer, which will be available next month. The Churchkey flat-top can is made from recyclable steel and provides an airtight seal, protecting the beer from light and oxygen. It is opened by puncturing two holes in the top with a steel opener called a churchkey.

These types of cans used to be standard in the beer industry after they were introduced in 1935, until the pull-tab was invented in the 1960s and they all but disappeared. Now the Churchkey Can Co. is using nostalgia branding and packaging to offer this forgotten beer experience once again. Portland-based home brewers Lucas Jones and Sean Burke came up with the pilsner recipe, and the beer will be available from April 15th at a variety of retailers and drinking establishments throughout Seattle and Portland. It will cost $9.99 per six-pack (with a recyclable churchkey included) and $3-$5 at bars and restaurants. Take a look at Churchkey’s video below:
