American Can Company

Some of the first beer cans which came off the Krueger assembly line back in the 30's were produced by the American Can Company. Recently, I met with Mike Pankratz in the hills outside of Worcester, Mass., and he shared stories about his grandfather and step-father, both of whom worked for American Can in Milwaukee back in the day. Mike gave the museum a generous donation of test cans and other oddities that the company produced throught the years. Needless to say, the 300 plus cans that Mike gave us have made the Beer Can Museum a better place! Thanks for the donation, Mike - you are now have lifetime free access to the East Taunton Beer Can Museum! Spring is coming, as is the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of our blog. Control your excitement, please...
