This bottle is a Mason's Old-Fashioned Root Beer bottle. Most of the APL label has worn away from being buried in the ground. Only the white background color remains and the Mason's name on the neck which I believe was a yellow color print. The back only has Bottled Under Authority of Mason & Mason, Inc., Chicago, Illinois in fine print remaining. The bottle mark on the bottom identifies it as made by the Thatcher Glass Manufacturing Company in 1952.
Mason's Old Fashioned Root Beer is an American brand of root beer. It is owned by the Monarch Beverage Company of Atlanta, Georgia.
Mason's Root Beer was first manufactured in 1947 by Mason & Mason, Inc. of Chicago, Illinois. Mason's Root Beer and flavors line were widely distributed in the Midwest as well as some Southern states. By 1978, Mason's Root Beer was mostly shelved in favor of the higher-volume Dad's brand of root beer, which Monarch acquired in 1986.
