Calumet Baking Powder  (c. 1889 in Chicago, Illinois [abbreviations:  formerly Ill; today IL])

The invention of baking powder must have truly seemed like a miracle to our baking grandmothers "back then" - mid-to-later 1800s.  Of course, we've all grown up taking this item for granted with baking, and it's hard to imagine the baked items 150+ years ago without this rising agent.  Calumet was created in 1889.  You'll get the full scoop in this story:  https://www.madeinchicagomuseum.com/single-post/calumet-baking-powder-co

KG Baking Powder - Guaranteed - True Height Can (date unknown, but around early 1900s )

In searching for some history on this KC Baking Powder company, I came across my first peer who's also building a museum online:  
It turns out that KC baking powder was made by the  Jaques MFG Co. in Chicago which was established in 1890.  Originally there was a paper label on this tin.

The Tins of Taste collection is mostly short-run-designed tins made for a special time, place, event, etc.  The long-run-designed tins such as a spice or condiment in "the same tin" for 50 years is very seldom made today with companies moving into plastic or a foil-or other-lined cardboard container.  

Therefore, there has never been any intent within the Tins of Taste collection, to include "the world" of beer & soda pop cans.  There are literally thousands, and it's never been an interest like the food-product tins.  But once in a while one catches my eye because of the design, color, or name (history & a story to tell), & I'll pick it up, especially because it's always a gift (otherwise going into the garbage)!  So this is just a short run 

SODA CANS -- Sometimes called "soda" cans, or "pop" cans, or "soda pop" cans

7-Up (c. 1929)  - Some history of 7-Up:  https://www.historyoasis.com/post/7-up
Read a very interesting blog paragraph about this 7up can from the 1976, BICENTENNIAL year, 50-State set at:

The blog person said that following instructions on Can #1, & stacking them in a pyramid, you had the image of Uncle Sam!  See photo on the blog.

In 1976, 7up released a bicentennial 50-can "United We Stand" set.

The bottom still intact, so whoever drank this soda, poured it out after opening the "bank" slot.

Canada Dry

NOTE: Coca Cola has such a great number of cans and tins, that it will be on its own separate page.


BEER CANS BEGIN HERE ~ ~ ~ along with some bottle caps!  You still need a church key in your pocket now & then if you're a beer drinker & you're going to an outing!

Anhauser Busch - Budweiser (c. 1879 Anheuser-Busch Brewing Association name began)

Budweiser (c. 1876) (Statue of Liberty w~flag - 19 May 2015 - from a bar display)

A family Christmas party is held in a motel-inn with a party room for rent, & they allow food & drinks to be taken in - the only one in a town of 75,000.  Each adult guest gets 2 complimentary bar drinks of choice.  I'm not a beer drinker, but usually take my 2 cans home for beer bread or biscuits.  Last Christmas (2023), I was chatting with a man, sitting on a bar stool, thinking he was a customer, & telling him about my Tins of Taste Museum after I saw this empty can on the highest display shelf behind the bar & commenting on the wonderful "history-related" image.  Within a minute or two he went around the bar, climbed on something, & rearranged the display row after taking this down & giving it to me.  Therefore, it's most special!  c. 2015

Coors (c. 1873)

Coors Light came out in 1978, but the company began 105 years earlier - in 1873 in Golden, Colorado.

Frozen Run Black Bear Mountain Birch (Pennsylvania Black Bear info on can) (c. 2003)
Reading through some info in a "search," it seems as if this is no longer made.

*Miller High Life ..... Milwaukee, WI  (c. 1903; 1855 Miller Brewing began.)

"Miller High Life - - the Champagne of Bottled Beer" was a long-running, print & musical, advertising slogan for this beer during the 1950s 'n 60s when I grew up in Wisconsin.  I can still hear it because in those decades, T.V. commercials were filled with ads for beers & cigarettes.  The Miller Brewing Company, which began in 1855 by a German immigrant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, began this beer in 1903.

*New Glarus Brewing Co. (Ale) ..... New Glarus, WI

In 1845, 108 Swiss settled in New Glarus, WI, & it's known as America's Little Switzerland.

If you're ever driving in this area, a bit west of Madison, Wisconsin, plan to stop in for awhile to transport yourself to Switzerland.  See this short intro:

Three Floyds Gumballhead Pale Ale ..... Munster, IN (c. 6-21-2019)

Began as a settlement of Dutch immigrants.  From their Historical Society:


*Titletown Brewing Co. ..... Green Bay, Wisconsin  (c. 1996)  https://www.titletownbrewing.com/about

Where else is "Titletown" than Green Bay, Wisconsin, home of the Packers football team?  The team began in 1919, by a football player who went on to be the team coach, Curly "Lambeau" - the name of the field/stadium they play on today.  Green Bay became Titletown after the Packers won the 1st two Super Bowls in 1967 & '68, under an amazing coach, Vince Lombardi.  The name stuck, even though they didn't get to the Bowl again until #31 ('97), lost in #32 ('98), & #45 (2011) won again.
