A friend of mine found these in a house that was being torn down. They were under the floor boards. I did a little research to find out that the original Ft. Schuyler Brewery was in business from the mid 1800's til prohibition killed it. Then it reopened and operated under a couple new names and owners until they started making this brand again in 1959 up to 1992. These ones have " no deposit, no refills, dispose of properly" embossed on the heel. I'm guessing they are from the 60's or 70's. They are both still full also.

    Cool find Tommy, I like how you hung that flange in the background! Looks good there. Yu were lucky you had a railing to hang that on, I had to look a little harder on mine.;)

    Thanks P-man!! I LOVE that sign it is hanging behind the bar I'm building. I actually have a mirror that goes in that frame (about 100 years old) that I still have to set in and finish framing it. then the flange will hang from the bottom edge.

    Sounds cool man. It's funny that you call me P-man, that's what people call me here too. Now I'm just paranoid.

    Cool bottles! Drink the beer! On second thought, bad idea. No, TERRIBLE idea....this isn't wine we're talking about. These are definitely post-1962 (different labels), and likely 1970s as you suspected, per internet breweriana sources. Somebody was very sad one day in 1975 or thereabouts, having lost part of their six-pack through a gap in the floor. That might just make me cry if it was me. You might check for a one or two-digit date code at the right side of the bases. "74" would be 1974, and "4" is likely 1974, for example. Lesson Learned: Don't drop unopened beer bottles through the floor while drunk and performing home repairs/remodeling.
