When a "brewery" is not a brewery:
People often inquire about "brewers" names on bottles or other advertising which were not listed in the books. Prior to 1890, the bottling of beer was prohibited on the premises of a brewing concern. The law stated that "bottling must be done in a building entirely distinct and separate from the brewery or warehouse." The law led many brewers who wanted to supply bottled beer to enlist the services of bottling houses. Their beer was therefore kegged and transported to the bottlers for bottling.Many of these bottlers used their own name on the bottles as the brewers of the contents.These should not be construed as "brewers". This info is from a book AMERICAN BREWERIES II By Dale P. Wieren..

My first site opened on 4-1-2002
This site is about my passion for collecting beer bottles. You will find out the reason I started, and lots of pictures of the beer bottles I have acquired over the past 29 years. I started when I was 13 years old. I have well over 25,000 different beer bottles in my collection now.I do take donations in beer bottles and cash to help run this website. When I first started I was finding most of my bottles under bridges, by building, from friends and just about anywhere I could get them. At first they they just looked good sitting on my small shelves in my room. My whole family thought I was nuts. Now over 26 years latter my family thinks I am crazy. My wife is very good about my collection. My kids have no clue why I like beer bottles so much. This is why I like them. Glass to me has allot of history and is very interesting. It is something that most people have no clue how it is made nor do that care. When glass bottles were first invented. I feel that the people that made it worked very hard to make so little money for a days work. In a way, the time it took to make just one bottle just was not worth it to many people. By blowing the glass several people had lung problems and and got very hurt doing a days work. As people these days we would never in our right minds want to do the hard work it took several people to do by blowing glass bottles. I've collected beer bottles from all different spots of the world, like Russia, England, Japan, Germany, America and so on.Now bottles are not made by people but by machines. No glass blowing, no carving of the wooden mold. Just think about all the work it took just to make one beer bottle. I just enjoy the history of glass bottle making and the beer that is put into them.
Were Life is one big bottle of beer that never ends.
Although a large amount of beer was consumed in America before 1860,
beer bottles from this period are very rare and all have pontiled bases. Most
beer made during this time was sold in wooden berrels to local taverns and
Did you now that Glass did not become widely used until after the Civil War (1865)..??
Did you now that from 1879 to early 1900's the Hutchinson stopper was commonly used. A heavy wire
loop controlled a rubbler gasket that stayed inside the cork..??
Do you feel lucky???
