Description

This beautiful can (from a set of 18) was designed in 1977 by American artist Stephen R. Kidd, whose work has hung in both the White House and the Smithsonian. The buildings were accurately reproduced using period photographs and drawings as a reference. The front of the can shows Entrepreneur F.A. Poth and his sons examining the blueprint for their planned expansion while behind them are loaded huge wagons of beer kegs.
F. A. Poth & Sons
When Frederick August Poth arrived in the U.S. in 1861 from Germany, he worked for Vollmer & Born in Philadelphia. In 1865 he established a small brewery which expanded so rapidly that by 1895 Poth & his sons made plans for a new brewery. Using the newest inventions, such as refrigeration, this brewery was one of the forerunners of modern brewing in America.
