Just got this one in the Mail Today. BLATZ Art Deco Soda. You might think this is a Prohibition Bottle but I'm pretty sure it's from the 1930's. You might think this is from Milwaukee but does not say Milwaukee anywhere on Bottle. Instead it sez Grand Rapids Michigan on the Bottom, which is good since I prefer Michigan Bottles. Leon.

It sez Val Blatz Brewing co. on the Bottle which was in Milwaukee but on the bottom it sez Grand Rapids Michigan. I know many big Breweries in the old days would have Distributors all over the Country & even other Bottlers that would bottle & sell there Products. I got Schlitz & Pabst from Michigan but not sure if or what connection Blatz had to Grand Rapids. LEON.

Unfortunately it's not a original cap. I'm looking for one though. LEON.
Yeah I know that. There would be staining inside from evaporation. They look quite good with a cap regardless of its originality. I would be scared to recap a bottle though. Especially one looking that good. It does cause scratching to do it without a automatic bottle capper machine.

that's one thing we forget now days is how many different flavours they had back then , some are still produced now but some lost to time and no longer available
Dr Pepper is the oldest soda still available today, first served at the 1885 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, One full year before Coca-Cola was introduced to the public.
