    This unusually sized (8ounces) once held the Reading Brewing Company's Pale Reserve brew. Reading had been out of business for years, but the brand has been resurrected. It's not known if the new brewers use the original recipes or not.

    It's also unusual to an ACL on a beer bottle. The bottles were made for Reading by Owens-Illinois at their Bridgeton, NJ plant in 1967 (according to my deciphering of the manufacturer's date code found on the vessel's bottom.

      Another brand I've never heard of, but I'll drink to that. Isn't beer a major food group anyway?

      That's a nice PR8 Bottle you have there Ted_Straub. Did you know that the Reading Brewery made 4 different versions of this bottle? They all are the same size but with slightly different graphics on them. I have all 4 of the variations, I'll have to post it soon.
