This is related to vintage computing...but it's also related to beer!

I can across this brew. Anyone know the computer model on the label?

Some of the brews are labeled different years with different retro style artwork. Quite refreshing really.

Do you have a link to the product line Caluser? I was given a few bottles of this one by a friend. I didn't know there was a whole series of them. Cool! :)

Damned if I can bloody find it again. One had Lass on it and the other had a Ye Olde sail boat being attacked by a squid or something.

Awesome! What a novel marketing idea. It's appropriate that a personal/desktop computer was chosen to represent 1981.

I was thinking that.. that's why I wondered if EVERY bottle with 1981 showed the same pic.
When I saw these pics the 2nd time, I was really impressed with the artist's approach.. I just love the fact that the airplane is in the mountains behind the car, behind the beach girl the boat is under attack, and so on.
