Not a clue.  I've seen it too.

I have observed the longer-search phenomenon in Google searches over the years.  Does anyone understand what is going on there?

Google finds some earlier cites if you add a word to the search:
"FROM bean to bar"  and also the plural  "beans to bars"  turns up
some more. Why a longer searh term finds results that a shorter one
misses I don't know.

Here's one that appears to be from 1956
