National Compliment Day...and
Today is National Compliment Day. I think this is a wonderful idea. I'll start if off by offering a compliment to Joel Sydney Kelly. JSK, you are the master of the photoshop. I admire your ability to find the "just right" photos to use and please keep them coming.
Second and, certainly, not by much is National Beer Can Day. Here's a little history:
Beer Can Appreciation Day recognizes the great day in 1935 when beer was first sold in cans. Credit for the first beverage can goes to the Krueger Brewing Company of Richmond, Virginia. Made of steel and weighing in at almost 4 ounces, these hefty canisters opened with a church key. The first beer produced in a can goes to Krueger Brewing Company of Richmond, Virgina but it was American Can Company that made canning drinkable beer possible. Krueger’s took the risk with American Can Company just weeks before the repeal of Prohibition.
Weighing in at 4 ounces, the hefty steel cans opened with a church key. Loyal Krueger’s drinkers favored the can over the bottle 9-1.
- 1935 -Cone-Top – G. Heilemann Brewing Company – La Crosse, WI – Introduces cone-top cans which fit existing bottling lines convenient for small brewers with small budgets.
Third, and a little further behind that National Beer Can Day is National Peanut butter day. To GWC I offer the sincerest compliment I can. Good work GW, my life is better because of your work. Thanks for keeping choppin' until you came up with a winner.
Any compliments you want to put out there? Any beer can stories, like crushing a steel beer can. I'm a little afraid to ask for peanut butter stories, but go ahead if you have some.
