    Ginger Beer?

    I got this bottle in a box lot, down in Mississippi, and I think it is a Steward & Patteson Ginger beer bottle? S & P Ltd. on one side, ,

    And.. here is where I get confused, because haven't been able to find more info, the other side says, MALIKA & PATTESON LIMITED NORWICH & SWAFFHAM, .

    Any help?

    I wasn't able to locate any clear ginger beer bottles, or references to using them for ginger beer.

    Thank you Max,

    the 'Malaika' is what was giving me a problem. I usually try and research my bottles for at LEAST few hours online, after I look in the bottle guides, and if I am at a loss, I put them here, for any kind of input. It helps!

    Thanks again,

    Lady P[;)]

    I'd contact the museum in London, U.K. for fun. I'll bet they could direct you to a bottling co. or provide some historical info... and then I'd be searching Africa for some tie. [:)]

    I just did a quick search and Swaffham is near Sandringham in the U.K. Here's the link to a map http://www.smoothhound.co.uk/hotels/corfield.html

    This link is to a bed & breakfast near Swaffham. Try contacting them. They might be delighted to do a little research for you or they may have some info. http://www.corfieldhouse.co.uk/

    Happy trails!

    Hello, I am in Swaffham Norfolk. These Malaika Patterson Bottles appear to be modern representations of the Swaffham Steward & Patterson Brewery Bottles. I would be interested in finding a few especially a purple one. You can contact me through my eBay site Albion Antiquities . user name : albion-alex
