September 12: Russian beer drinkers like their brew to be supplied in large containers, and canmaking technology is happy to oblige.
Until recently the largest aluminium beer can in Russia was half-a-litre, barely enough to slake a Muscovite thirst.
Since April, leading brand Baltika has been using one-litre cans made by Rexam that it calls the King. It is a contender for the Cans of the Year Awards being held in Chicago as part of The Canmaker Summit from October 8-9.
