National Beer Can Appreciation Day
January 24, 2018
Four score and three years ago, the first canned beer made its debut. The Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company, in collaboration with the American Can Company, delivered 2,000 cans of Krueger's Finest Beer and Krueger's Cream Ale to loyal beer drinkers in Richmond, Virginia. Ninety-one percent of Krueger beer drinkers favored the beer can, made of steel and weighing a mere four ounces, over the bottle. And so, America's love affair with beer cans began!
