8 Decades of Canned Beer:
A Timeline of Notable Events


(click for larger image)

79 years ago today the first American canned beer hit shelves in Richmond, Virginia. They came from a Newark, New Jersey brewery called Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company and sparked an almost immediate shift in the way that many of the nation's breweries packaged their beer. In the almost eight decades that have followed the beer can has gone through many changes but also remained much the same. Above is a timeline of some of the notable events that have made the beer can what it is today. Happy 79th Birthday Beer Can!

Here are a few beer can related events taking place around the US today...
