What does the embossing on your bottle say, Screwtop -- I can't quite make it out with these old eyes. Of course, if it doesn't say "beer" or "brewery," your bottle probably contained ammonia, bluing, or soda.

It was definitely a beer bottle. It is very hard to find info on this guy, but S.H. Frederick was a dealer in wholesale liquor.

Come to think of it, I have a bottle that isn't listed on your site. It is a very rare bird.
I think, Bruce, you're trying to put too fine a point on the purpose of the PHOENIX BOTTLING WORKS bottles. The bottling works is clearly associated with the brewery.
This is the type of BEER bottle that gets listed in the library.
Been documenting and collecting this way since the 90s so I will leave documenting anything else to someone else.
Thanks for helping just the same.

I missed your set of limitations on the beer bottle site, Bruce. Most collectors learn to specialize, I think -- by geography, by color, by lip finish, by age, etc. You have hit on an eccentric specialization as described in the guide to your beer bottle "library."

Your specialization overlaps all the typical rubrics, and as such offers limited usefulness for those doing typical research. Your site constitutes a gallery, not a library -- a gallery of bottles that is limited to no logical research category.

Your specialization is your own; but, I cannot but wonder how much more useful your site would be if its subject were "amber blob-top beer bottles of New York" or "American stoneware beer bottles." Maybe next time.

The St. Louis Weiss Beers are sure shaped funny, at least from what I'm used to seeing. The colors are killer.

Great idea. There's your next project. It's plenty of work keeping up with just the ones I document now.

Bruce,

I feel you pain. Without limitations the site would be a full time job! If someone thinks they can do better, they should build their own site. I don't think general collectors appreciate the amount of work and dedication that goes into creating and maintaining a site like yours.
