During the70s at the College of Charleston I worked for man in the battery area. I was tasked to clean his old cistern and found a Germania Brewing Co bottle with sea shells within the glass. I could not find info on this company.
Brewery Operated from 1896-1918. SO, Your Bottle dates from that time period. being a crowntop I'd assume probably more from the 1906-1918 period because crowntops were in much less use before then. BUT, It could
possibly be from as early as 1896-1906 as crown tops did exist then but Blob Tops &/or Baltimore Loop Blobtops were much more popular in that 1896-1906 period. even though the crown top invented by Painter in 1892 it was rarely used throughout the 1890's & did start to catch on until after Owens invented the ABM Method in 1903. Is it ABM or BIMAL? Leon.Bruce has a few of these pictured on his website. link below. Leon.
Found this 1920 Orange Crush bottle in the same cistern.
