Today is Canned Craft Beer Day!

poster by Richard Mitchell

On this day back in 1935 the almighty beer can was born. The first beers to be canned were Krueger's Finest Beer and Krueger's Cream Ale from the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company in Newark, New Jersey. 77 years later the American craft brewing scene is in full swing and there are now close to 500 differents cans of craft beer available from nearly 160 different breweries located in 40 states as well as Washington, DC. 

To honor all of the craft breweries who have chosen cans, and to the brewers who make all that great beer that ends up in those cans, please hoist one of your favorite canned beer today and say CHEERS!

Post a picture on Facebook of your favorite CANNED craft beer

Specify on Untappd that you're drinking a CAN of craft beer

While you're at it, tell a friend about the virtues of cans and if you're not a believer in cans give one a chance today - and remember to pour those beers into glassware (unless of course it's can of The Alchemist's Heady Topper)! Also, if you know of any events supporting the first annual Canned Craft Beer Day please let us know so we can spread the word.
