On This Day



On This Day… A Very Important Day!

Written by: George Chittenden : 30 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 24th January, back in 1935 when canned beer made its debut. The American Can Company, the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company delivered two-thousand cans of Krueger’s Finest Beer and Krueger’s Cream Ale to faithful Krueger drinkers in Richmond, Virginia.

An attempt to can beer was made in 1909, but it was unsuccessful, and the American Can Company had to wait for the end of Prohibition in the United States before it tried again. Finally, in 1933, after two years of research, a can was developed that was pressurised and worked.

Competitors soon copied, and by the end of 1935, over 200 million cans had been produced and sold. Their popularity exploded during World War II, when American brewers shipped millions of cans of beer to soldiers overseas.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
