NEW ORLEANS(WGNO) - Eighty-two years ago, on the great day of January 24th, beer was first sold in cans.
The first company to produce the beverage in can form was Krueger Brewing Company of Richmond, Virginia.
Made of steel and weighing in at almost 4 ounces, these hefty canisters opened with a church key.
If you're a beer can appreciator then today is the day for you.
At the Southern Food and Beverage Museum you can catch various beer cans from around the country on display.
