Here’s a fabulous Rueter and Company Reverse on Glass sign, circa 1900 from the long defunct Boston, Massachusetts Brewery. The company was known for the ales and porter style beer. Later Rueter merged and formed a partnership with Ally, and was called the Rueter and All Brewing Company prior to prohibition starting.Details
Columbia Brewing Co Banner Beer Pewter Lidded Beer Stein 1904
This Columbia Brewing Company Banner Beer mug was most likely used during the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. The Columbia Brewing Company had a large display at the World’s Fair and introduced their Alpen Brau label at this event. This mug is hand painted and features a pewter lid. This mug is considered rare and is a favorite of Breweriana collectors. During the Pre-Prohibition era, Columbia Brewing was one of the largest in the United States. It rivaled Wm. J Lemp Brewing Company and Anheuser-Busch in the Saint Louis marketplace.
