Cool beer packaging

I saw this linked from Coudal Partners, and really loved some of the designs, especially this one from Nelson ---> nelson

Upon looking into this beer brand (as I'd never seen or heard or it) it's actually a brand from Fosters, the drink fondly referred to as cat's piss in the UK. This is quite different from Fosters (in design anyway). This page, from the designers of Nelson's branding, Taboo, really shows off some awesome design work.

I'm especially interested in beer packaging at the moment, as my brother-in-law is contemplating a micro-brewery and we're talking about product names and branding. I'd love to go down this route, imagine how you'd savour that beer! Now, pass me an ice cold Pale Ale.
