Credit for the first beer can goes to the Krueger Brewing Company in Virginia! That BIG BOY was made of steel and weighing in at almost 4 ounces!
While Krueger Brewing sold the first beer in a can, The American Can Company made canning drinkable beer possible. Krueger took the risk with American Can just weeks before the repeal of Prohibition.
Significant Dates in Beer Can History
1935 -Cone-Top – G. Heilemann Brewing Company – La Crosse, WI – Introduces cone-top cans that fit existing bottling lines convenient for small brewers with small budgets.
1963 -Pull Tab – Pittsburgh Brewing Company – Revolutionizes the beer can when it introduces Iron City Beer in self-opening cans with pull tabs, also known as pop tops. With their sharp edges, the pull tabs became the feared litter at beaches, parks, backyards, and anywhere beverages were consumed.
