Richmond, FIRST in beer!!!

Jan 24, 1935 only 21 months after the end of Prohibition the first beer can was introduced in Richmond, VA as a test market.  Unfortunately for canned beer drinkers the first pull tab wasn't introduced until 1959.

I would love to shake up a beer and then watch someone open a can with a can opener.  Splash!!!
