    JKL , not sure I've seen the Timmins Beverages bottles ? do you have one or a picture or just seen one at some point in time ?
    I have the Timmins bottle. I'm originally from Northern Ontario so kind of have a thing for the northern bottlers. I picked it up in a lot of bottles about 2 months ago. The powder blue ACL was kind of cool.

    ok now I see the picture it was hiding from view , either way neat bottle and never seen that one before . this style was used in a few different places in Ontario . I have seen a bottle from Renfrew county , its in that style but an embossed bottle


    also I do have a timmins bottling works bottle but mine is embossed and likely earlier than yours . my book says they operated from 1931-1965 but then splits the dates and says 1931-1943 and 1960-1962 , your bottle is likely from the 60's and the embossed one earlier ( listing is confusing , they could of operated the entire time 30's > 60's , not from timmins area so I don't know anything more about the history of it )

    also I might have one of the embossed woodland beverages ( Woodstock ) in a box in the garage but not sure . had got one in a lot of bottles a few years ago but not sure if its still there , that's what happens when you accumulate the amount of bottles I have here

    Are you thinking of the Zero Bottling Works?

    There was an Artic Beverages, believe it or not from Conroe, Texas that featured polar bears as well. I found a pic of one surfing the web.
    I remember this being a high dollar bottle for a while until someone found a whole room full of them and then the value went down.

    I live just south of Conroe. Those Arctic's are neat bottles but as you note, extremely common.
