The first beer can that was also the first ever beverage can was introduced to the market 83 years ago.

Nevertheless, it is not a thing of the past. A lot has changed from the first beer can to today’s beverage can, for example, less and less material is needed for production. Cans are thinner than a human hair: the wall thickness has been reduced by around 40% in recent years.

Absolute feather weights: a 0.5l aluminium can weighs only 16g today, 45% less than it did in 1978. State-of-the-art printing technology now makes it possible to print photorealistic to promote beer products at place.

The can also protects beer from environmental influences and preserves quality and freshness. In addition, beer in beverage cans can be cooled more quickly. Due to its low weight, it is also very suitable for consumption on the go.
