The most hipster beer in the world?

This project is almost too surreal to believe, and yet, here it is: Churchkey Can Co., a new pilsner packaged in retro flat top cans, brought to life through an unlikely partnership between “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier and friend Justin Hawkins (who came up with the idea), the Ball Corporation (which designed the can), a few homebrewers in Portland, Ore. (who designed the recipe) and Two Beers Brewing (which brews the beer).

And so, in 2012, we have a canned beer that requires a church key to open. The flagship brand, Churchkey Pilsner, hits stores throughout Seattle and Portland on April 15. Could this be the most hipster beer in the world?

If you could bring back one piece of vintage beer culture, what would it be?
