condition: fair
Before Prohibition, Detroit had almost a hundred breweries. Most of them only lasted several years and were usually bought out by the larger breweries (Tivoli, Stroh’s).

About half of these bottles are in good shape for being over a 100 years old. The other half could use some cleaning.

All of them have an aqua tint and all are labeled “DETROIT, MICH.) and “REGISTERED.”

The three Detroit Pre-Pro breweries represented here are as follows:

—A. R. Andrews (four large bottles)
--C. E. Norris & Co. (two large bottles)
—McBrode. Earl, and Pollard (one small and one large bottle)

All for one money.
