Dug this up in NJ today. I can't find any info on it anywhere... It says "Vigor" in cursive on the front, 10 FL. OZ. on the neck, G 15186 14?6? 2 10FL. OZ on the bottom.

Any help with this would be great! [:)]

Soda bottle from Vigor Beverages in Kearny/Arlington, so finding it in Jersey makes sense... Welcome to the forum

Thanks epackage! Is this a hard bottle to come by? I couldn't find anything on it except some bottle caps for root beer from the same company. Was this a bottle they used for all their flavors?

I'm unsure how hard it is to find one and I'd say yes to the different flavorings question. I'd say the bottle caps identified the flavor. here are two unused caps for their Root Beer currently on Ebay...
