ABW has quite a few different seasonal cans. First starting with the Heavy Machinery IPA series, they eventually branched out into some other styles. These colorful patterned cans gathered a lot of attention around the city at their release. Over time, they’ve slowly expanded the lineup. What remains consistent across their seemingly random patterned icons are the hidden easter eggs found within. Hopefully we continue to see the series expanded in the future even further.
The hidden images within the cans aren’t always easy to find. After staring at the can for a few minutes looking for them, it feels like your eyes play tricks on you. This page should ease your frustration. A few months ago, I started saving the seasonal cans I reviewed, and documenting any of the images I found. Keep in mind I may have missed a few, so let me know.
These cans were first seen in the summer of 2019, as part of release of 3 flavored Einhorn variants. I was able to find a banana, Helm’s Workshop logo boxing gloves and Saturn.
Cold Glory was first released for July 4th, 2019. These patriotic cans gave me a tough time, but I finally found a few. A hotdog-snatching grackle, Texas flag, and a real hot dog in a bun!
Ginger Lime Einhorn
These cans were first seen in the summer of 2019, as part of release of 3 flavored Einhorn variants. I was able to find a scooter, Helm’s Workshop logo , and a horse.
One of the more unique color combinations in their seasonal cans. Gold Fist was part of the original seasonal cans, and is released in late Winter. I haven’t looked at a can specifically for easter eggs, but did find a funny dressed devil in one of my pics.
Heisenberg is released in the Spring (April). I haven’t looked at a can specifically for easter eggs, but did find the common Helm’s Workshop logo .
This beer was originally launched as their 7th anniversary beer. It’s since made its way into being released each may. After scouring the can, I located a UFO, corn cob, and maybe a chupacabra?
Battle Axe marks the start of winter, and has makes its way into cans each November. I haven’t looked at a can specifically for easter eggs.
Super Awesome is GABF award winning Helles, dropping into stores during the August heat. I stared at this one for a long time, and have only found the common Helm’s Workshop logo .
These cans were first seen in the summer of 2019, as part of release of 3 flavored Einhorn variants. I was able to find three Spongebob houses: Patrick’s (rock), Squidward’s (Easter Island head), and Spongebob’s (Pineapple). Of course, there’s the Helm’s Workshop logo too.
Edit – Thanks to the numerous people that pointed out what I thought was a rover/spaceship is the Helm’s Workshop logo. They’re the longstay design company partnered with Austin Beerworks.
