The earliest reference I could find was an 1764 ad which offered among other things, "bibles, Spelling books, primmers gloucester cheese and bottled beer." The forms varied little from the 1850-1880s. American manufactured stoneware beer bottles are commonly found in the Eastern States.Pottery bottles are often two tone glazed but also can be found with a solid cream color glaze. Black glass ale bottles from the 1840-1880s are largely unembossed. These bottles which also contained various soft drinks, were heavy pottery bottles with a characteristic stocky shape unlike any of the foreign import pottery bottles.
Anchor Brewing Company is a growing American craft brewery and we do occasionally recruit for positions throughout our organization.Examples from the Midwestern states are often paneled or sided and many were molded rather than thrown on a potters wheel as were the Eastern varieties.Embossed examples from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin are rare.These are typically three piece mold bottles, mostly in quart size, made in various shades of olive, olive green, olive amber and amber.
They differ slightly from their European counterparts in the lip styles and shape.
