Kan Kegs ????

#1

Post by DanielinAk » Fri Jul 12, 2019 12:34 am

I found this Hamms can over the Weekend and just now cleaned it and noticed it says KAN KEGS instead of KEGLINED. What’s the story and History on that?

So I grabbed the last Gold Hamms I dug on the left and I noticed the KAN KEGS on the right is slightly different other than the IRTP. Notice the double line at top sits higher than the KEGLINED can on the left.

I don't know the story or history on the Kan Kegs but I know that I now have another Hamm's variation I need to find for my collection. Good Find!

Kan Kegs was the trademark for Pacific Can Co. in the 1950s. A number of west coast brewers used them - especially Acme, Great Falls, Lucky, and others, but I've never seen a Hamm's of that vintage with it.

Hmmm, I started to say it was just a can cut differently and then I noticed the IRTP vs non-IRTP verbiage near the bottom front.
Good find!

Haha I even said IRTP in my post. I’m having a good laugh over this as my wife’s voice keeps echoing in my head saying “ reading is fundamental “.
