Here is an early reverse on glass sign framed in a gesso frame from the Olympia Brand of beer, out of Olympia, WA. It’s made from Tumwater, and this slogan has lasted for years, as did the horseshoe brand design in the center with the waterfall. This early pre-prohibition sign is from about 1900-1905.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.
