  • Beer Cans
    Beer cans, while currently all the rage, didn’t come on the scene until 1933 when Krueger Brewing Company shipped a small test batch of 2,000 cans. These came complete with special instructions on how to open without the beer exploding. Coors released the first aluminum beer cans in 1959.

06/12 MRBC TAKES 3 MEDALS AT MOUNTAIN BREWERS BEERFEST

MRBC took 2 golds and a silver in the North American Brewers Association awards tonight, which is held in conjunction with the Mountain Brewers Beerfest.  Two different versions of our Scotch Ale took gold and silver.  Copper John Scotch Ale took the gold medal, while a lighter version of the brew, dubbed 58 Schilling, grabbed the silver in the Scottish-style category.  In the American-style Barley Wine competition, the 2009 Frostbite Barley Wine earned the top step on the podium.
