The first beer can was sold on Jan. 24 1935

In the 1930’s, this new invention was a result of brewers attempts to innovate after Prohibition ended in 1933, according to Time. American Can Co. had been working to get beer in cans since the early 1900s but found it difficult to can the carbonated beverage without exploding.

After two decades, engineers figured out that lining steel cans with a lacquer-like material used to line kegs would keep the 80 lbs. per sq. in. of pressure at bay.

The first beers ever sold in a can were Krueger’s Finest Beer and Krueger’s Cream Ale, hitting shelves in Richmond, Va.

Drinkers reported that the canned brew tasted more like draft beer than when served in bottles.
