Today (Jan 24th) is probably some sort of holiday around Michrider’s place down there in Booger Hollow (or wherever the heck he holes up when he ain’t squatting on a curb somewhere).  It was on this date back in 1935 that the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company of Newark NJ introduced canned beer.

Ahhhh, BEER — like BIKE, one of the GOOD four-letter words!!

Michrider I had no idea that you lived in Newark NJ…..but my thanks go out to you for your invention.  How long did you work at the Krueger brewing company.

Call me a snob, but I prefer my beer in glass.

Snob.

It had to be said.
But I’m a snob too. I think the last time I had beer in a can I was half way across Iowa.

I normally prefer to drink my beer from glass.  However, when I’m Kurbing it in Iowa, I prefer cans, just in case I slip and fall off a Kurb!!!!!!!

Can or glass?  What ever, as long as it’s cold and you are in good company who cares.

Check the avatar. A PLASTIC glass but oh, did it hold a delectable nectar brew from heaven. Drawn at Day-4’s finish last year in Altoona by our charter’s own in-house small batch brewer. He made us all beer connoisseurs in a single evening! Ahhhh!
