Hyde Park Brewery Beer, Tin Sign, St. Louis, Missouri
Tin Embossed Beer sign from the Hyde Park Brewery in North St. Louis, MO. Circa 1930s Tray. This brewery was based in the Baden area of North St. Louis and they owned many local taverns in the northern part of the city where the competition was not as great as it was with the majority of the brewers being based in the southern part of the city. The Hyde Park beer brand was a major player in the early 1900s prior to prohibition and again after prohibition for many years. In the 1940’s they hit their zenith of sales and immediately started to lose market share to Anheuser-Busch and Griesedieck Bros breweries. In the 1950s on their 75th year anniversary the brewery introduced Hyde Park 75 to try to secure some new market share with female drinkers, but after a few years, the brand was not a huge hit, and the brewery was sold. Shortly after the purchase the Hyde Park brand was eliminated once and for all.
