I joined recently I've noticed a few Bay City, Kolb brewery bottles but I haven't seen this one Kolb Bottling Co. in any pics here or anywhere could this be maybe a prohibition era soda, there's a 25 5 1 on bottom edge. Found woods walking, I've never tried digging them.

I don't know the history of Kolb specifically, but it's quite likely that it is Prohibition-era. I know a lot of breweries switched over to bottling soda during those years. 1925 seems like a plausible year for that design of bottle.

I would guess a Prohibition Bottle BUT, during Prohibition Kolb changed it's name to Kolb Beverage Co & was also known as Kolb Cereola Co. LEON.

That's odd, that bottle clearly embossed Kolb Bottling Co.
