The bottle cap wasn’t invented until the 1892 by the Crown Cork Co. Baltimore, but not highly used until into the 1900s. Before the cap was introduced most all bottles had corks including Medicines, Perfumes, Beer and Alcohol. The corkscrew was invented in the late 1700s and still used today.
In 1893, the Minneapolis Brewing Company introduced Golden Grain Belt Old Lager to the market. The name “Grain Belt” referred to the geographical area of the country where the beer was brewed.
