That’s a cool one for sure. Too bad the acl is not a little nicer for that price. Must be an uncommon one. 1936 seems early for an acl??

I'm not sure how uncommon it is ? I've seen 2 or 3 different ones so far maybe a couple more online .

some acl's have been getting high prices but just because someone did pay up to get this bottle at some point doesn't mean the next guy will

people often mistakenly assume that high ebay prices earned during an auction will always stay that high everytime the bottle comes up but sometimes they don't and I doubt that bottle would hit $50 if it was on ebay with open bidding , the seller doesn't even allow you to make an offer

neat bottle but not a good investment at that price unless the person really wanted one

clear bottle with a blue and white acl , didn't save back for some reason

also did a google search today and found a paper label bottle from same bottler , picture isn't super clear but a clear 8 oz bottle with vintage label for a lemon sour drink

I'm not sure if I have any other pictures of acl's or not , other than sussex ginger ale which was one of the dominate brands in NB .

2 towns/cities I don't have anything from - Bathurst and Miramichi , both seem big enough and far away enough to have had own bottler but not sure if they did or not ? don't know of any bottles from either

there is many embossed bottles from NB too but mostly plain embossing , just bottler name and city , not many with anything else unless there is some I don't know of

I also haven't found a 7 up from NB yet , pretty sure one exists from one of the main cities most likely

there is also an embossed bottle from Edmundston NB , maybe the bottler there before it became Brunswick Beverages . this was the bottle I wanted to buy last year but seller wanted way too much for it , posted it to site last year and should be a post about it somewhere

VH Albert was there local bottler and also did coca cola during 30's > 40's , think this is the only bottle with his name on it

came across a couple more , is another version of the Sussex bottle this one clear marked " drink Sussex beverages "

interesting marked " seven up sussex ltd " on back , indicating they were also bottling seven up or owned by seven up .

also an acl bottle for " Devon Kist " which appears to be in operation before Sussex Beverages .

" Devon Kist " king of drinks Devon Kist Beverages , North Devon NB


had never heard of North Devon before so google mapped it and its basically a part of Fredericton

most info on this bottle is on a page about sussex beverages

That’s a nice bottle. Never seen that one before. And a nice read of some history. Thanks for posting.

Here’s another bottler from New Brunswick. Arctic Beverages of Saint John.
Saw these online a few months back, but they were already sold when I inquired. Looked like they may have cleaned up well.
I think there are other acls from this bottler, but don’t have any pictures.
