Colorado's Best Canned Beers: Celebrating the 200th Anniversary Of The Can (VOTE)

First Posted: 08/25/10 06:39 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 06:30 PM ET

August 25th marks the 200th anniversary of the invention of the can.

While there are countless ways in which the can has been indispensable over the last two centuries, few uses have become more iconic than as a beer vessel.

In Colorado, the can's 200th anniversary has been preceded by its resurgence as the container of choice for some of the finest local brews. Once considered a red flag for cheap, watered-down beer, cans have become popular among artisan breweries of late thanks to their portability and the ease with which they can be recycled.
