First Aluminum Beer Bottle?

In a previous post, I wrote that the first beer packaged in an aluminum bottle was from Big Sky Brewing in Montana.

It turns out that isn’t quite accurate.

Apparently, Lang Braurei in West Germany brewed some beers in the 1960s which they named after some aviation pioneers such as Charles Lindbergh, Claude Dornier and Hugo Junkers.

They’re not like today’s aluminum bottles which have much sleeker contours.   Indeed the bottles look more like cans if not for the slightly  long necks.

I can’t find much to criticize about the decorating though.  These aluminum bottles are beautiful and have an old-world quality about them that makes them very attractive.

They’re obviously collectors’ items.
