Old Clagary Brewing Bottles

Post #1 by OldNelly » 4 years ago

I found this bottle in an old house that I was working on today. Don't know about you guys but I've never seen one like it.

This one I actually hit with a pick axe while doing a plumbing rough-in about a year ago. They don't make 'em like they used to.

Those are a great find Nelly. I especially like the first. It will look fantastic on your bar.
Maybe 80 or 90 years old? Any date on the bottle?

I can't really find too much information on either of these, no dates or anything on the bottles. The top one, called a soda syphon, I think is from the 1940's. One sold at auction 2 years ago went for $185. The second one is a light blue 7 oz bottle. From what I could find on the web it is probably pre-WW1. There was one sold on Ebay recently for $177.50. Glad I found them because there is no way in hell I'd pay that much for a couple bottles. If I ever get a proper bar built they absolutely look great on it.

I found these in a wall in my basement when I was doing renos. That's when I knew I bought the right house!
