In 1966, McCormick Hall opened as a dormitory on Marquette’s campus and would go on to house generations of students for 53 years. With its cylindrical architecture and location in the beer capital of the world, Milwaukee, it earned the nickname “The Beer Can” from all who called it home.

Now, nearly six decades later, the building is a legend to those who knew it and a myth to the newer generations of Marquette students–earning its tagline “The Can, the Myth, the Legend”. Blue & Gold Brewing honors its influence on Marquette’s history by bringing it back to life, in a different form.


“The Beer Can” is a Cream Ale with fruity and citrusy notes, featuring Michigan-grown Chinook hops and a smooth mouth feel.


Available starting National Marquette Day, February 10th, at our partner breweries and in numerous locations across Milwaukee. For more information, check the map below.
