Here are some of my beer signs from the mancave.
Pic #1 is an Aneker Draught Supreme, a product of Pabst, The 9 1/2" by 17" sign, is a wood base with a plastic molded sign. The back label says; EDM, EMBOSOGRAPH DISPLAY MFG. CO. with Patents, issued and pending listed, dated 1968. Andeker was brewed from 1938 to 1997. This is the only sign like this I've seen, none found on the net.
Pic #2 is a Pabst Blue Ribbon sign, 11" by 24", solid wood sign, (later signs made on pressed board), painted or printed. The only labels I can see is on the front, lower left, above the gold stripe; Pabst Brewing Company, Milwaukee, Peoria Heights, Newark, Los Angles, and on the lower right, above the red strip; P-272. No date can be found, but my research says it's from the early 70's, Manufactured by Kotler Manufacturing & Specialty Corp. 300 North Barkley Blvd., Chicago, Illinois. This is a very common sign found all over the net, must have made them by the hundreds.
Pic #3 is a florescent back lit sign. The 13 1/2" by 37" sign, is all plastic, with the face molded to look like stained glass. The back label says 1981 G. Heileman Brewing Co. Inc., LaCross, Wis. Code 9712004 Designed and Produced by Embosograph Display Mfg. Co., Chicago, Il. This is a common sign, found on the net, and I have been given two myself.
Pic #4 (a composit showing the movement of the sign) is an all plastic, 15" by 12", sign. The sign is back lit, with a rotating disk, which lights up the wording in stages. The bottom rocker say, "100% NATURALLY BREWED", which is lit all a once. Above that, "LESS FILLING" fades in and out, then "LESS COLORIES", fades in and out. The back label say; Designed and produced for G. Heileman Company, by Embosograph Display Mfg. Co. Chicago, 60614 Code 30112081. This label has no date, but I've seen the same sign, with a label matching the pic#3's label, dated 1981. This is a common sign, can be found on the net from time to time.
My Dad got all these signs from local taverns in the late 70's and early 80's, never paid a dime for them.
Thanks for looking;
