Beer Can Appreciation Day
Beer Can Appreciation Day is celebrated on January 24th. How are you celebrating Beer Can Appreciation Day this year?
By Shira Kogut on Jan. 24, 2017
Today in honour of the beer can’s creation 82 years ago, we are celebrating:
Beer Can Appreciation Day!
The original cans did not have a pop top (this only came along in 1963), but were opened with a Church Key (ironic name).
Can you imagine how different the craft beer industry would be without beer cans? And think of how far it has come as well. Now in 2017 one of the biggest trends will be the Crowler, a big 32 ounce can poured on site which is meant to keep beer fresher when you take it home.
How to Celebrate Beer Can Appreciation Day:
Well the obvious one is drink a can of your favourite beer, but the choice of where to drink it is all your own. Find a unique spot and make sure to use #JustBeer and #BeerCanAppreciationDay to post on social media. #Your favourite beer as well. We are sure the company would love to see it.
This is also a great opportunity to start a beer can wall collection. Growing up my dad had a Coke can collection. The whole neighborhood knew about it and he had cans from all over the world. Beer cans have some pretty beautiful art and awesome designs, so use today to start your collection.
For more ideas of how you can appreciate beer cans:
- Watch a craft beer Hopumentary
- Make a beer can cake or a real beer cake
- Have a meal with friends using our beer infused recipes
- Make some beer can art
