Featured is a very nice early reverse on glass brewery sign from the Wiedemann Brewery which was based originally in Cincinnati, Ohio. This ROG style sign is very rare, and features beer bottles from both the Wiedemann and Royal Amber brands of beer. Wiedemann was later brewed in Kentucky before the brand was eventually closed…Details
Here are four early cardboard hanging signs advertising Budweiser Beer, Malt Syrup, Grape Bouquet, and AB’s Ginger Ale, all from just before the Prohibition time period, circa 1915. Anheuser-Busch was very proactive in preparing for the potential implementation of prohibition, and started selling products besides beer in order to survive. 3 of the 4 signs here were all developed for that very purpose, and allowed the company to stay in business during the 13 years prohibition lasted. The largest selling product AB made during this time period was Bevo, another non-alcoholic cereal beverage.
