A.H. Manske BRW. Co., Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Inscription reads, “A.H. MANSKE BRW. CO., MILWAUKEE WIS.” It’s a beautiful bottle, well-designed and well-crafted. Unfortunately, the beer didn’t match the bottle and Manske went under in 1897 after only one year of operation.
The A.H. Manske Brewing Company was only open for one year (1896). It’s not hard to see why since there were at least 15 major breweries in town…and a whole bunch of other smaller ones.
