I've now been focusing on Steinie Bottles as part of my Breweriana Collection for the past couple of years. As my collection grows I sometimes purchase large groups of vintage bottles or upgrade which leaves many duplicates to sell. Steinie bottles have been around since 1933, just after the repeal of prohibition. They were very popular in the day as their size made for easy storage in the icebox and for easy display for the retailer. As returnable bottles became more popular in the 50's and 60's the Steinie style bottle started to disappear and only a few breweries continued to use these in the late 1960's. These are highly collectable bottles, in my opinion much more so than12 oz long necks.. I also purchase steinie bottles so if you have some you want to sell, drop me a line through the "Contact Us" page. The above photos provide examples of some of my favorite steinies. The top photo shows 5 steinies that are part of a set of 100 different labels. The labels are obtainable but to find them on original bottles is near impossible.
