ORIGINAL: Peekskill Native
Clearock was made by the Abele Bottling Works at the present site of the Field Library on Nelson Ave. in Peekskill. I used to walk past the place every day on my way to school. The plant was taken down during large scale Urban Renewal. I remember well this brand, mostly available as orange flavor growing up in Peekskill since the price was less than other sodas. Abele also bottled Squirt. I only remember seeing another flavor once, I think it was grape. I will try to get more information for you. The Abele's were good Peekskill folks who made a good product at a low price. My dad would bring home Clearock from Piemueller's - which was once an A+P - or Eman's Market - I think they are still in business - as an occasional treat. Other popular brand's for us in the 1950's and 60's were Mission and Hoffman.
Hi,Hello all, I don't really collect ABMs or Sodas, but here's one I never heard of: Clearock - bottled in Peekskill NY. Any info appreciated, and if anyone interested in buying it, make an offer - at least cover the postage! lol
