My small collection of Grapette memorabilia. A counter display, a 24 bottle carrier, and a 1947 bottle that were all found at local flea markets years ago.
This is the only style of Grapette that I ever found that was St. Louis marked.
The local Grapette Bottling Co. also produced Clown Beverages. Marked on the back Clown Bottling Co., St. Louis Missouri, however Grapette is not mentioned. But the bottle cap clearly links the two together. The bottle is dated 1952 and is 10 0z. I've have seen a 7 oz. version out there but I have yet to get my hands on one. The root beer caps are quite plentiful but I have seen a cream soda Clown cap at auction and failed to bid. I imagine Clown had many different flavors.
