condition: fair
make / manufacturer: U. S. Brewing Co.

The United States Brewing Company opened in Chicago in 1889 and closed during Prohibition.

The crate is 18 1/2 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 10 inches deep.

Photo #4 shows the famous United States Brewery logo located on one side of the crate. Even though there’s some staining here and there, the crate is in pretty good shape for being so old.

Either way, the 100 year old crate is an important part of Chicago brewing history.
