Beer Can Appreciation Day with Sun King

For some, it’s “Beer Can Appreciation Day.” For others, it’s everyday! Billy Ray, In-House Artist at Sun King Brewery, shares everything you need to know about Sun King Brewery, the celebratory day and the artwork behind it all!

• When Sun King Brewery opened in 2009, there were less than 50 craft breweries in the United States that were canning. In 2016, that number grew to over 500 canning craft breweries.
• Americans are twice as likely to recycle aluminum cans than they are glass.
• Cans are infinitely recyclable. They are made with 75% post-consumer materials.
• Inside of less than a month, a smelted down aluminum can will be turned into another can, or something else.
• The aluminum can is impervious to oxygen and light – the two elements that are most detrimental to maintaining a beer’s quality.
• The can is like a little keg – which is the best vessel for maintaining a beer’s quality.
