In the 1979 film Alien, "Aspen Beer was a brand manufactured by Weyland-Yutani in the 22nd century and brewed in Aspen, Colorado, United States. The beer came in a 6"-tall 440 ml press button can with the Aspen Beer logo on it. While a real world brewery does exist in Aspen, Colorado, called Aspen Brewery Company, it was launched in March 2008 and apparently bears no relation to the Aspen Beer in Alien." —Stilla(with a customized swash 'A' and alt 'N') for the logo, an unidentified typewriter face for "BEER", andRockwellfor all other type.

The can designer is unknown, but here are the film's art and production credits:

Crew members of the USCSS Nostromo drink Aspen Beer in the mess hall. This is shortly before Gilbert Kane has some stomach discomfort, but it's not the beer's fault.
