Photographer's Note

Theme of TrekEarth is learning more about the world of beer through photography.

What's there to learn about crown caps except that they tell about habits of one TE member? Well, Finnish alcohol politics has mainly been about trying to prevent Finns drinking themselves to death. And gathering tax money as much as possible. Considering this it's no wonder that there was not much beer culture until late 80's. Local beers were mainly usual lager stuff. And until 1986 there were only two foreign beers for sale in Finland: Tuborg and Carlsberg.
Since then a lot has changed. Most of the caps in the picture are from bottles bought and consumed in Finland during last twenty years, although some of them are souvenirs from other countries. Also many pubs and bars have nowadays a good selection of bottled and draught beers.

There's exactly 476 caps here, but some of the are from cider or cooler bottles. And this happens to be my 400th upload on TE. If you want to tease yourself, try to find a few dublicates that are hiding over there.

Please have a look at the large version.
