The world’s first canned beer is sold on this day - January 24, 1935
How’s that for a historic anniversary? You can thank Krueger’s Beer in Richmond, Virginia for making it happen with a first run of 2000 cans.
This photo from the FDR Library shows soldiers receiving World War II beer rations:
Sgt. Henry Klein sells T/4 Ralph Lohman his ration of American beer. Seven cans were rationed in Sept. but future deliveries were uncertain.
Birthday cheers for Canned Beer!
