Grace Bros can-no brewery listed

#1

Post by DURTBAGG » Sun Sep 08, 2019 8:31 pm

Shifting some cans around this evening and came across something that I’ve never noticed before. Pics below of my example of what appears to be USBC 68-5. Unless I’m just missing something, I don’t see any brewery info listed on this can anywhere :?:. What info can anyone offer here?

Note the posted pics without brewery is Keglined, the supplement is National with vertical red stripes. Keglined maybe a mistake? I don't have either can to check.

Not sure what the circumstances were that led to this can, but they are out there. Somehow, there was a production run of this can without the mandatory. My guess is that the paint was dry that was otherwise necessary to print the mandatory at the seam. Matt

All of the red ink would have been applied in a single pass on the second phase, wouldn’t it? Specks always reminds me that it is ink, not paint. Ziphippie

Huh? Maybe I am misunderstood something. What is ink instead of paint?
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

doing my google-diligence, general guidelines not strict rules.
Inks are made of dissolved pigments and try to penetrate the surface, paints use an intermediary medium to carry the non-soluble pigment to the surface and coat rather than dye. Ziphippie
