I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

On this glorious day back in 1933 the first canned beer was sold.  8)


THIS DAY IN HISTORY: THE FIRST CANNED BEER WAS SOLD


If I wasn't three years sober I would pop a can of suds in honour of such an important and historical day, since I can't I'll let the party animals here at HAF have at it!

Cheers!

Well done on the three years, Father Bruno!

As somebody who's picked up and packed out at least hundreds of beer cans from various out of the way places, I guess they have something to be said for them--they don't weigh as much as glass, and they don't easily break into piles of razor sharp fragments.

That's quite an accomplishment! :smilenod: :party:

Do you think the inventor of canned beer thought that his invention would become as widespread as it is? Not only canned beers, but canned sodas as well. :notsure:

Thank you Recusant I wasn't fishing for compliments when I posted this, but I do appreciate the sentiment.

Thank you as well xSP...I bet the inventor would be amazed at the amount of canned goods produced each year, according to this website it is 200 million a year, and counting.

The world's beer and soda consumption uses about 200 billion aluminium cans every year. This is 6,700 cans every second - enough to go around the planet every 17 hours.

One day late but I thought I'd add this here nonetheless.

March 11th is a celebration of Lithuanian independence from the Russians. They achieved their independence in 1990 when 400 hundred protesters were injured and 14 people were run over and killed by Russian tanks.  The Lithuanians do cherish this independence day, even as we yanks celebrate and cherish our fourth of July.
