    I found this sign nailed to the wall in the basement of an old house we bought. Any ideas how old it might be? History? I tried to email Old Milwaukee but they said they don't keep any history regarding old advertising material. It is made of a heavy tin. There is nothing written on the back of it. The beer bottle and old guy are raised slightly off the surface. Thanks.

      Great early tin litho sign! Looks to be in excellent condition. I wouldn't be surprised to see this sign sell for $500.00 or more.

      It was made in the mid 1930's when they still used "brew" in advertising.This was originally a prohibition brand that didn't have alcohol.

      Rachel,
      If you are from Omaha, I'm just down the road. I'd give you good money for that sign.
      Dustin-
