Aspen Beer

An Aspen Beer can prop.

Aspen Beer was a brand of beer manufactured by Weyland-Yutani in the 22nd century and brewed in Aspen, Colorado, United States. In the 20th century, Aspen Beer came in a 6"-tall 440 ml press button can with the Aspen Beer logo on it.

Aspen Beer was consumed by the crew of the USCSS Nostromo.

Behind the scenes[]

Notably, the cans are one of the few times "The Company"'s name — "Weylan Yutani" (later changed to Weyland-Yutani in Aliens) — is revealed in Alien.

Some production-used Aspen Beer cans have been sold following the film's release — one was acquired by the owner of the website Aliens Archive at the Phillips 1996 "Toys And Dolls" auction,[1] the Prop Store sold one in July 2004 for $749.00 and another was listed on their site in 2009.[2] The most recent one to sell was sold by The Prop Gallery in 2014 as part of their "Alien Week".[3]

Additionally, (a forum dedicated mainly to prop's in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner) user "SKIN JOB 66" acquired an unused can label from "one of the guys who worked on the movie" in 2008 and made a limited amount of replica cans, although the cans themselves erroneously used pull tabs.
