Tylersport Bottle Show

On Sunday, March 17, 2002 there was an antique bottle show at the Tylersport (PA) Fire Hall. Here's something Tod Von Mechow dug and gave to me at the show. Click here to go to Tod's Bottle site.The most unusual thing about this bottle for me is the "Brewery and Saloon" embossment. This verifies the notion that brewpubs are nothing new! By using American Breweries II we see that this is PA 516f. The brewery was listed under this name for 1884 until 1890. Even though the base of the bottle is broken, it's the only example I've ever seen from this obscure brewery. At a recent bottle show in Baltimore I picked up this John Roehm (PA 598) bottle. The brewery was located a block away from Ortlieb's and reopened after Prohibition as the Erlanger B.C. At a Brewery collectables show at Merchant Square in February I picked up this "Golden Eagle Brewery" (PA 478) bottle- a Philadelphia brewery I had never heard of! It's in American Breweries II however, and was last owned by John Roehm at Broad and Cumberland Sts.
