Texas Beer can history

#1

Post by Jmanns3 »

I am working on a Vintage Texas Beer can display for a local restaurant/microbrewery. I am trying to find information about the Time Lager Cone top and the Bluebonnet Cone top cans. Mostly want to know when they were marketed and for how long. I am thinking that the Grand Prize can (74-5) is the first can from Texas (1937) but not knowing anything about the Bluebonnet or Time, I don't want to make that claim. Any help appreciated.
Thanks
