It seems as though I have two things in one here. This was in my grandfather's garage for years in northern Minnesota. It is a painted wooden crated that Says "Drink Land O' Pop Beverages" in red letters. But you can see another sign under the paint that almost looks engraved..the letters look depressed into the wood. It reads "Cold Spring Brewing, Cold Spring, Minn". I have found a lot of information on the Brewery, but none on "Land O' Pop". I think it may have been part of the brewery's way of staying in business during prohibition, by creating a soft drink, or pop, as us midwesterners say. Either way, It seems like I have something old and linked to the early days of consumer products in Minnesota. Any thoughts?

    I have found a few more Cold Spring Beer crates painted yellow, but nothing with Land O' Pop.

    I'd say this was bought by the bottling company after Cold Spring switched to cardboard returnable cases.MANY breweries and bottling companies "re-purposed" the crates and containers when companies either closed or switched packaging.Bub's picnic beer cases are almost always painted silver and then branded with a stamp over a defunct brewery's old wood case.

    So have you heard of Land O' Pop?
