Well, as another response to the incredibly successful SHOW YOUR FAVORITE HUTCH!!! chat, since this site lacks a alcoholic bottles area and I like alcohol bottles albeit rarely come across one intact, I decided to make this. I would love to see everyone's favorite alcohol bottle--do not post your favorite brand if it's a modern bottle! Grr. I only have two intact embossed ones, and one older can. I like my Muskegon Brewing Co. bottle best, but this Grand Rapids Brewing CO. bottle is a pretty neat find from my kayaking trip today! I never take good pictures, so they don't look like much. But they're really nice to me. Pre-prohibition I'm pretty sure for both. The Grand Rapids one appears to be tooled. If I recall, they later bought out Muskegon Brewery. I know, these are nothing compared to what I'll see on here, but it's whatever I can find. (The Muskegon piece is from my town and sits next to a local Squirt--both found in Mona Lake the same year. The Grand Rapids piece I photographed with two other bottles I today found on my trip in the Muskegon River Clean-up!--I posted those here:https://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/Muskegon-River-Cleanup-finds-m656097.aspx) So, let's get this show rolling!

I love the town name Americus, SandChip!
Goodman, the colors on it are gorgeous!
What are the ages and history? I'd like to know that on all the bottles, too.

Leon, do you know where I could find a new old-stock or possibly reproduction label (preferably original) for my G.R. bottle? (Sorry, all, for going off-topic somewhat.)

Hello Robert , I never have tried looking into the history of this bottle . I am pretty sure it dates around 1890 to 1900 . Keep telling myself to go online and research it but never have . Got a lazy streak in me I guess lol .
