Brewery Description Grade Price Click to Enlarge
Pabst Brewing Co., Milwaukee, WI What'll You Have? - Pabst Blue Ribbon; 12 x 9 inch, reverse on glass sign. This has been framed. It's just the wood frame and has no glass covering. The glass sign is in exceptional shape, but there is some sort of light over-spray of paint on the right side of the sign. There is a rough feel to the surface. I don't know the vintage, but it's typical of 50's signs. If it weren't for the light overspray it would be a 9+. Nice companion to the similar design lighted sign and harder to find. (See Descr) $.00sold
Isengart Brewing Co., Troy, NY Troys Best Beer; 13 x 8 inch, embossed cardboard sign.This is a pre-prohibition sign that has been framed for hanging. Has a sturdy wire hanger on the back and has non-glare glass. Very nice shape. There is a small piece missing in the lower laft hand corner in the tan area. There is some scattered light staining in a some of the white letters. The staining may or may not clean, but I didn't want to take it apart to try. It's very presentable as is. Isengart closed in 1915. 8+ $65.00

Piels Bros., Brooklyn, NY Piels Light Lager Beer shingle sign; 91/2 x 15 inch, heave cardboard or pressed board sign. Sign is dated 1962 and is on white board under shrink wrap.

What's on the back of the sign is unknown, but I would suspect it is just plain. What looks like light scratching in the photo is flash off the shrink wrap. 9/9+ $29.00
