On March 31, 1941 Brewers were directly impacted by The U.S. Government’s introduction of  rationing both Tin and Steel. The limitations were a necessity brought about by the country’s increased aid to the United Kingdom in World War Two. Soon enough the U.S. itself would enter the conflict. Brewers were at times so short of the bottle’s ‘crown caps’ that they required customers to not only return the 24 bottles to a case, but also the bottles caps, which they would straighten and reuse.
