    Thank you for liking my post about my Paul Westphal portrait. Do you know anyone who would be interested in acquiring it from me?

    No one comes to mind. Good luck.
    Bruce, I bought this one as a soda. Queen City Bottling Co. (Cincinnati) 7 fl oz. You would know if it is actually beer. If not, then it must be soda. The key may be the word Bottling, because if it’s beer, they use Brewery, right? Maybe not, why I’m asking. Also, did beers ever come in 7 fl oz size? Again, if not, then soda. What say you? Thanks.

    Not sure. It resembles a GINGER BEER in its style.

    Right, ginger beer, but not alcoholic, like you collect. Did your alcohol beers ever come from bottlers, as opposed to brewers? In 7 fl oz size?

    Many beers came in a 7 oz size. Some breweries owned their own bottling companies too. Some bottling companies contracted beer and then they bottled it. I use http://www.oldbreweries.com/ to help determine if a company is a brewery. Also use https://www.newspapers.com/ to look for all kinds of companies.
    Hey Bruce, thanks for the thumbs-up do you have any idea what brand of beer that was, I'm guessing it was 1920s

    It is from the MILWAUKEE BREWERY CO of Milwaukee WI. It maybe 1920. Not really sure.

    Thanks Bruce, I thought that might have been just the bottling company not the brand. I'm in the Chicagoland area I will be having a collectible and antique flea market if you know anybody in the area interested they can contact me. It will be in conjunction with a music fest very reasonable probably haven't of August once I know the date, I would contact them as soon as possible
