Chief Oshkosh Red Lager Can FrontThe question was what was the first American craft beer to be sold commercially in cans. The answer is Chief Oshkosh Red Lager way, way back in 1991 (that’s right, it wasn’t Dale’s Pale Ale in 2002). Much more on the Chief Oshkosh Red Lager story and the real history of canned craft beer can be found in my cover story for the next edition of All About Beer, which drops in a week. Happy Fourth.
