Root Beer Labels

I recently found several root beer bottle labels.  They are not very expensive and look nice mounted in a frame on the wall.  Here is what I have found so far.

Some of these brands I have never heard of and do not know if they can even be found anywhere.  I will need to do a little research.

Grandpa's Root Beer

Several months ago I found a bottle in a Loveland Fleamarket with the label,

Grandpa's Own Special Formula Root Beer

It has a paper label with a cork in the top and I assumed it was someone's home brew.  Then last Saturday we decided to drive up to Ault Colorado and check out the antique stores there.  There are 4 of them in this small town.  I was both surprised and very pleased to find a crock jug with the same brand on it.

I did a bit of research and found that there really is a company in St. Joseph, MO that bottles and sells Root Beer and Cream Soda. I have now added them to my list of places I want to go and visit.  I love this little crock. It probably only holds about 24 ozs.

I paid about $4.00 for the bottle and $15.00 for the crock.
