Definizione

An airtight metal seal crimped on the top of most bottled beers, ciders, mineral waters, etc. (1)

Nota

Before the crown cork was introduced, disposable wooden cork stoppers were used to seal bottles. In 1880 William Painter, an American scientist, revolutionized the bottling industry with his invention of the crown cork - an innovative means of sealing beverage bottles. [...] Although the crown cork was a revolutionary invention, it was not until the automation of beer racking in the second half of the XX century, that full scale production began. (2)

Contesto

The bottles are then capped, usually with a crown cap lined with plastic. (3)
