The original Reno Brewing Company opened in 1903 and was located on East Fourth Street in Reno. The brewery produced beers such as Sierra Malt Lager, Malt Rose, and Royal Lager, and grew over the course of nearly 45 years to a production capacity of over 40,000 barrels per year. The Reno Brewing Co. was able to survive Nevada prohibition acts by producing near-beer, seltzers, soda waters, tonics, and fruit-flavored soft drinks. It could not, however, survive the lack of brewing grains, bottles, bottle tops, and other needed supplies that were unavailable after WW II; the brewery closed in 1948. This gorgeous tin sign is 1 of only 2 known, and it’s in fantastic shape. The colors are vibrant on this 37.5” x 25.5” in frame lithograph. The lower left and right corners are marked “RENO BREWING CO., INC… RENO NEV.” and “BACHRACH & COMPANY, S. F., CAL.”. Ready to hang. - Jacobitz Collection -60193
