Yuengling Flat Top  - Virginia Tax Paid


12 OZ
Cone top beer cans were originally designed so that they could be filled on the brewery's bottling lines. This way breweries were able to produce both bottles and cans without occuring more cost in filling the flat top can containers. They were with us from late in 1935 to 1960.

Flat top cans were the first to be filled with beer in early 1935. The Gottfried Kruger Brewing Co. of Newark, NJ, was the first US brewery to package its beer in cans. These steel cans required an opener with a sharp point to puncture the top. Due to their size, these large and heavy openers were referred to as "church keys". Flat top remained with us until the mid sixties when the Pop Top arrived on the scene.
