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
Rare Stern Brau Dry Light Lager Reverse on Glass beer sign made by the Star-Peerless Brewery in Belleville, Illinois, circa late 1930’s. This sign would have been attached to a cabinet light which was affixed to a cash register for easy visibility. The Stern Brau brand was the Star-Peerless breweries flagship beer and they frequently advertised the brand as “The New Champion” or “The BEER with a PUNCH”. This sign says “Few as Good, None as Better”.
The Stern Brau brand was discontinued in the late 1940’s. Stern Brau was a major competitor to the Stag Brand in Belleville brewed by the Griesedieck Western Brewery Company.
