Like most brewers in the mid-19th century, Blatz of Milwaukee was established to refresh the local population. But Blatz was the first Milwaukee brewery to go national, and by the middle of the following century, it was producing more than one-million barrels of beer a year. Favorite Blatz collectibles from the 1950s include advertising figures featuring barrel- and can-shaped bodies.
