Description

This was totally a cool find! Original (not copies!) beer labels from a local brewery!

"The original Port Townsend Brewing Company was one of the largest and longest operating breweries of its time. It was capitalized at $25,000 and established September 5, 1905 by George Watkins, Michael Hartman, and N.W. O'Rear. Ernest Studerus, a well-known citizen at the time, served as brewmaster. The site of the old brewery was on the west side of Monroe Street between Water and Washington Street which now houses the Athletic Club. June 9, 1906 the first beer was tapped. The local newspaper, The Leader, had these words to say, "Port Townsend beer drinkers will be given an opporunity today to test the product of the new Port Townsend Company's product - the brew that might make the city famous." Their prediction was correct and the company became very successful. Not only did they provide beer to every local saloon, but they also shipped to other areas around Puget Sound. Unfortunately for the brewery, Washington voters passed the prohibition initiative in the fall of 1914. The law began in January of 1916. Port Townsend Brewing Company continued with a line of non-alcoholic beverages but closed a short time later" (Courtesy Port Townsend Brewing Company).

This label measures appx. 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" and is in perfect, unused condition. More information on this can be found at http://www.brewerygems.com/townsend.htm

Shipping policies

1). I ship via Priority mail.
2).Insurance is optional ($1.80 extra). Uninsured items damaged in transit are not the responsiblity of the seller.
3). Though not always possible, I try to combine shipping whenever I can in order to get you a better shipping charge/rate.

Landfill Ladies: If you make a purchase in increments of 2, going to the same address at the same time, the 2nd will always ship free!
4). I normally only ship within the US. If you're out of the country (including APO/FPO), please email me and we'll see if we can work this out for you. Internationally, I can only ship the Landfill Ladies via Priority International Mail. The size of the box I must use to accomodate the heads is over the limit for regular mail. The shipping will probably start around $25 US and go up from there. (If I were the one determining the rates for the USPS, the rates would be better! :).
