The beer can was born on 1/24/1935. That is the day that the first commercially successful canned beer went on sale to the general public. The brewery was the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company of Newark, New Jersey; the beer was Krueger’s Finest and Krueger’s Cream Ale; and the shop was test-marketed in Richmond, Virginia. (The reason Krueger test-marketed the product in the south was because if the new packaging was a flop, they wouldn’t tarnish their good reputation in their core market in the northeast.) The rest is history!
