Beer is one of the oldest beverages in the world, dating back to 5000BC! Beer cans are the most recycled packaging materials on earth. Beer cans chill down faster than bottles. Beer cans were first invented in 1935. Krueger’s Finest and Krueger’s Cream Ale were first sold in cans in Richmond, Virginia. Krueger had been brewing beer since the mid-1800s, but had suffered from the Prohibition and worker strikes.
Beer cans are preferred by most brewers because they help keep out two of beer's worst enemies: light and oxygen. The design of a can has minimal space between the lid and the beer, helping to reduce the amount of oxygen inside. On top of the geometry, cans provide 100% protection against light. Humans all over the world consume 50 billion gallons of beer each year.
The Czech Republic was the first country ever to have a beer museum.
