Ontario Ginger Beers

GB001 Horton - Simcoe ON-144

Minimum Bid: $500

Range:$800-1000

Sold: $500

This John Horton Simcoe is one of Ontario's rarest ginger beers. It is also a rare example of a Brantford Potteries made pint bottle. This example was decapitated and rust stained. We had it professionally cleaned and restored. It now displays near mint. We have never offered one of these before.

GB002 Reinhart - Guelph ON-51

Minimum Bid: $300

Range:$500-600

Current Bid: DNMR

The Royal City Mineral Water A. Reinhart Guelph is an impossible ginger beer to find in mint condition. These are always damaged. This is the best example I have ever seen. Near mint with only the tiniest imperfections. Marked and matching stopper. If you have been waiting to add this one to the shelf, wait no longer.
