January 24 is National Beer Can Appreciation Day. For a little background info on this historic day in beer, check out this article from History.com:

Canned beer makes its debut on this day in 1935. In partnership with the American Can Company, the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company delivered 2,000 cans of Krueger’s Finest Beer and Krueger’s Cream Ale to faithful Krueger drinkers in Richmond, Virginia. Ninety-one percent of the drinkers approved of the canned beer, driving Krueger to give the green light to further production.

    Cans are lined with BPA-containing epoxy. It is both a female hormone analog and an endocrine disruptor. No beer or anything else should be consumed from a bottle. Here’s just one recent study listing a problem with BPA: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/06/130612173330.htm

      You bring up an interesting topic. BPA is quite prevalent in many items we (as a society) use on a daily basis. For people that are making an effort to avoid products containing BPA, this is important to note. Of course, if you use canned spaghetti sauce, but avoid canned beer, you’re missing the whole picture.

      Thanks for starting the conversation!
