Tinned beer

foster beer tin

Early VB and Foster’s Lager beer tins.


Tinned beer! One and six a Can! Guaranteed true to label. These may be typical headlines in future advertisements in Darwin. On Thursday’s mailplane a local storekeeper received a few sample tins of tinned beer, guaranteed of ever lasting freshness. The manufacturers of this product are English and the local storekeeper has acquired the agency. As tinned beer is much lighter than the bottled it is anticipated that outback centres will be able to obtain beer at considerable cheaper rates than previously. Pass
the tin opener, please.
Northern Standard (Darwin, NT) Friday 30 April 1937.
