Ask Real Beer
I was wondering if there is any information you have about twist off
beer bottle caps. I was wondering if you may know when and where they were invented and
introduced into the beer world.
From Beer Dave: The twist off bottle cap appeared in the early 1960's. This was the same
time as the introduction of the pop top can. Some sights pertaining to
the bottle cap industry and manufacturers include
www.zapata-international.com, www.alcoacsi.com and www.crowncork.com
There is also a collectors club for bottle caps. The CCSI is the
Crowncap Collectors Society International is based at 4300 San Juan in
Fairfax, VA 22030. Dues are only $10 per year.
