Krueger started selling cans in Richmond, Virginia, on January 24, 1935, based off an innovative new design by American Can Company that had been invented about fourteen months before Krueger began selling the product.
When Krueger delivered 2,000 products of the new product to their faithful drinkers in November 1933, 91% of drinkers gave it a thumbs up. The deal was sealed - and the world was introduced to beer in a can! (And nothing was ever the same...)
