1970s Dis-go soda cans

    Newer Older

    notice the first one says "Dis-Go Beer" (and in tiny letters "non-alcoholic") - and the later one says "Dis-Go Near Beer" - or maybe it was the other way around -

      Looks like it may have psychedelic effects though.

      Maybe the idea was DIS-"GO" because it didn't slow you down.
      Perhaps you could get it at a DIS-GO-GO-TEQUE.

      hmm - I wonder if it was popular at the clubs - like Red Bull or something- though - I doubt it - I think if you were at a disco back in the late 70s and had one of these in your hands - it wouldn't necessarily make you "look cool"...hehe

      I remember my uncle laughing at it when he saw a couple cans of it in my fridge.

      The graphic looks more late 60s... Like one of those semi-generic graphics on a "Hot Hits Of Today" compilation.

      It is before the disco music era. My guess is just before that (about '73-'74) All EBC cans looked dated, even then.

      They have tab tops. EBC was one of the last breweries to use the modern opener. They were also one of the last breweries to can beer. I do have to compliment them on bucking the trend toward aluminum cans. They stayed with the three piece steel into the 80's, only switching to aluminum before going out of business (about '85)

      I also recall that Pittsburgh Brewing Company (brewers of Iron City Beer) held on to using steel cans until at least the late 1980's or so, as a tribute to the Pittsburgh steelworkers who made the steel used to make the cans. Today, Iron City is in aluminum cans like everyone else. Pepsi in Ohio stuck with steel cans as well until the late 80's.

      I never thought that steel would fade away, as it was decomposible (except for the aluminum top)
