I’m baffled by what dictionary the can design company was using to employ the word ”premium“ assuming they had sipped their product. Even before aluminum cans the labeling on Grain Belt cans must have been some very high quality paint. It is not uncommon to come across old steel cans in a farm dump that are still very ledgible after laying there for 60 years or better. Bottom rusted through and two gaping church key triangles in the top as a mute tribute to beer drinking in the pre pull tab days. There’s BC and then there’s BA, Before Aluminum. and then there’s the beloved Schmidt beer cans with the imprinted animals and fish. And a motto like no other “The brew that grew with the Great Northwest. Meaning North Dakota I think. Have a great day.
