    It was probably attached to the bottlehouse or outer brewery wall. Thats the only place that would support this big of a sign...

    acvolts. I think oldbeer is probably right. Another possibility is that these signs were used on premium Tied Houses that Pabst established in Milwaukee too. The weight seems extraordinary, so to be on the brewery itself or malthouse or another area of the facility is more probable. Please look up "The Best Place" in Milwaukee and ask for Jim Haertle. He may be able to give you the exact answer. Scott from Brady. Regards...

    I will also ask my friend who works at Pabst mansion . They are having a big event this week end so I may not get to him before Monday .

    LOL eye4beauty . It is for rich people :-( they are trying to regain old items from the house it is a high priced event to be sure . He gives tours though but no free beer . They tour every hour . It is an amazing place to see .

    I think it came from the front of the Pabst Corporate Offices in Milwaukee. You can see in the attached picture the area above the word "BREWING" where a round Pabst logo once was attached.

    In Tohma Wisonsin there is a pabst emblem of the same type atached to the front of a builing on main street surrunded by brick work about 20 feet up .This is now a computor store . It was told to me that it was a tavern sponcered by pabst that sold their products around the 1890's
