Around the same time as the Red Rock Cola acl showed up they had a new Red Rock Beverages acl. I'm talking about the Red Rock Beverages one the right which is a 1940 or 41. The Red Rock Ginger Ale is a nice acl as well, this one being a 1967, and I have seen a Red Rock Beverages in the same style.

This is the line I was talking about where they standardized the bottles so they could bottle any flavor in them. The odd thing is that the bottle on the left is the earliest I've seen of this particular variation and is a 1952 from Williamburg, KY. The right on is the more common variation of these.

Great stuff Morb!

Thank you. All of a sudden I'm liking Red Rock more and morb all the time (pun intended). [:D]

Plus here's another "bummer" I need to report. I just took a damp cloth to the cap with the hope of either highlighting some of the wording and/or possibly removing some of the corrosion. Bad idea! In the process (and I didn't rub all that hard) I caused a pin-hole to appear in the cap that soon developed a small bead of liquid to appear. And upon closer inspection it seems that portions of the cap may be paper thin. So I'm going to leave it alone and hope it will corrode over again and seal up the pin-hole that I created. But this sort of explains now how some of the contents evaporated out. Earlier I had the bottle on it's side and no liquid appeared ... at least not until I started messing with it. Now I think it had a pin-hole all along, but had just corroded over and sealed it shut. This leads me to believe even more than before that the cap has been on it for a long, long time.

Anyhoo ... that's about all this country boy knows about Red Rock Cola. Plus I'll never mess with another rusted cap again. I like this one right where it is. And when I stop and think about it, it's all Morb's fault! But I will forgive him this time because of his amazing contributions that saved this thread from certain death!

SODA"PO'd"BOB (at myself ... not Morb). [:D]

This is a long way from all the different Red Rock bottles out there. The brand has been around for well over a hundred years, but it's the ones I have picked up over time. First up is the tall embossed Red Rock bottle from Knoxville, Tenn. This was most likely the ginger ale which is the oldest flavor created by the company.

This is my newest acquisition from the bay, a Red Rock Company deco bottle.
