On January 24th, 1935, the first can of beer was sold. Hence, a bit of a celebration is taking place at Grumpy’s NE tonight.
This event is intended to bring all of us together who brew, and the rest of the beer community to all raise a pint to our beloved canned beers, help spread comradery in the craft world, as well as raise awareness to the awesomeness that is, craft beer in a can. Special appearances by 21st Amendment, Surly, Dave’s Brew Farm, and more!
…and a little Tallgrass trivia…Rob from Tallgrass mentioned that they recently purchased six of Summit’s old 60bbl tanks and started using them about a week ago. Add in the fact that the folks from Surly helped them acquire their canning line and I’d say we have a regular Minnesota connection!
