On this date in 1935 Krueger Brewing Company, in cooperation with American Can Company, released canned beer for the first time. Richmond Virginia was the test market for this new product. At that time it required a can opener (church key) a concept so new the beer came with instructions on how to open it. So if you have a beer today lift your’s in a toasting salute to Krueger and canned beer.
