This listing is based on a list created by Jim Friesen #2. It was later divided into sections of nations that have produced beer in cans, nations that have specific imports and places that aren't nations (non-contiguous areas, islands, off-shore possessions, linguistic enclaves, collective regions, etc.).
It has also been combined with Mark Rodgers' list of first cans, Thus, the can listed in column 1 is, as far as is currently known, the first can produced by/for the country. In some instances, the can in the second column is
the second can, but that is by no means the standard.

I'm certain there are a number of places referenced in members' collections that have been somehow overlooked. As always, it is to be stressed that this listing in no way affects or limits what individual collectors may choose to collect or in what manner they organize their collections. This is simply the clearest method of organizing the list to accomodate the broadest range of collectors.
This list was last updated in 2014 - there have been a few countries that have climbed the ladder of civilization since by having breweries that brew and can their golden elixirs.
