    Blue Top Ale - paper label beer bottle Kitchener Ontario

    there happened to be an estate sale nearby this weekend , advertised as having antique bottles but when I got there . the table was full of bottles but not much of interest , a lot of milk jugs without writing and common cokes ,

    also a fair bit of beer bottles and insulators , most looked common but I decided to buy these 2 as they didn't want much for them and didn't recall seeing either before , also had some neat books so overall I did ok


    according to my research online this bottle is likely from the 40's and was bought out by Molson around the late 40's or early 50's , then it seems to disappear

    its for " Blue Top Ale " Blue top brewing company limited Kitchener Ontario


    green bottle itself is a common made in Canada ( dominion ) bottle

    the other bottle is much newer but still kind of unusual . it has a local connection , its for the RMS Segwun . a large ship that travels the local lakes during the summer and is a popular tourist attraction

    its called the " ships lager " and was made by the Upper Canada Brewing Company when they were still located in Toronto and an independent brewer , think its from the mid 90's based on my research online and don't recall ever seeing one before

    I have no idea if the beer was actually sold or served on the boat at some point in time ? or if the beer is still being produced but I highly doubt it still is as the Upper Canada Brewing co was bought out and seems to now only have 2 beers

    That's a nice label on the Blue Top! I can't see the pictures of the other for some reason.

    not sure why those pics didn't work , should work now , the Segwun label is very nice , stored indoors and doesn't appear to have had light on it

    don't recall ever hearing about there being a beer for that ship , seem to recall a wine for some reason but can't find anything online about it
