If you think the best beers are in bottles, think again. Tuesday, January 24 marks the 77th birthday of canned beer and is now noted as “National Beer Can Appreciation Day.” Brews sold and served in aluminum cans first debuted on January 24, 1935.
At Timothy O’Toole’s Pub, guests “can” enjoy Miller High Life, Miller Genuine Draft, Miller Lite and Hamm’s in the can for $2, as well as Budweiser (Chicago) and Pabst Blue Ribbon (Gurnee). Don’t struggle with trading your pint glass for a can – just think of it as a mini keg and tap up!
National Beer Can Appreciation Day will be celebrated from 11 – 3 a.m. at the downtown Chicago location and 11 – 1 a.m. at the Gurnee location.
