How do you date beer cans?

How do you date beer cans?

There is no industry standard as to how brewers date their beers, though most use a “bottled on” format. That style indicates when a particular beer was canned, rather than when it is best by. Often, that date can be found on the bottom of cans, on the side of bottles, or on the case itself.

When did Coors stop using steel cans?

Steel, however, was pushed out of the market in the 1970s after Coors (NYSE:TAP) developed the first aluminum beer can. These were cheaper to produce, even lighter in weight, and took less time to chill.

What is the date on the bottom of a Coors can?

Product code is placed on the neck of the bottle or the bottom of the can, consisting of 14 characters, explained below. The pull date is the LAST DAY of the month shown. For Bottles, BBDs are located on the SHOULDER of the bottle. For Cans, BBDs are located on the BOTTOM of the can.
