Monday, January 24th was "Beer Can Appreciation Day." Many people enjoy a can of beer responsibly every day, so what makes January 24th so special? It was 87 years ago that beer was first sold in cans from a brewery in New Jersey called "Kruegers."

There are many advantages to having a beer in a can. It's easier to put a beer can in a cooler or's also quieter. If you drop a can of beer, you have a better chance of it staying in one piece.

When was the last time that you accidentally dropped a beer in a glass bottle that didn't go all over the floor with little pieces going everywhere? It's a no-win for anyone and as the saying goes "it's alcohol abuse."

According to science, it takes less time to get a can of beer cold than a bottle. To be fair, the same scientists also say that bottled beer stays colder longer but that's why koozies were created.

National Beer Can Appreciation Day

"National Beer Can Appreciation Day" reminds us that a simple aluminum container can be turned into a piece of art with funny labels and unique designs. We all know someone that has a beer can collection of different brews from all over the country and the world.

I don't know a single person that has a glass beer bottle collection and I would be nervous to go near one because only bad things can happen. If you appreciate a good beer, then you'll want to attend  "Binghamton On Tap" at the DoubleTree Hotel in Binghamton.

It's happening on February 19th with three sessions including a 3 hour VIP session. It's your chance to sample some of the best beers around, along with hard ciders and spiked seltzers. Throw in some really good food and music and it's a fun time for all.

You've got questions about "Binghamton on Tap" and we have the answers. It'll be here before you know it, so get your tickets below.

In the meantime, here are some pictures from last year's Binghamton On Tap at the Broome County Fairgrounds to get you ready for February 19th. How many people do you recognize?
