Been too long since I've posted any recent photos of cleaned beers. I posted these images in several of the FaRcebook groups to promote bottle collecting with this comment: "HISTORIC EMBOSSED BEER BOTTLES need loving too. Etching is sort of like rust on a can. TLC (polishing) brightens them up."
C. CONRAD BUDWEISER pint is a classic. Used 1500 on this one.
HEIM THE KANSAS CITY BREWERIES quart crown. Used 1200 on this one.
GEO. WM. OTTO TANNAHAEUSER BEER pint. 1st used 600 then hit it with 1500.

I'm waiting to find a STROH and an OLD STYLE. There's always next year.
