Ginger Beers

GB001 Taylor - Strathroy

Minimum Bid: $500

Range:$800-1000

Sold: $800

The R. Taylor Strathroy is one of my all-time favourite ginger beers. Absolutely one of Canada's best trademark transfers. If you have wanted one of these, this is the one. Mint condition.

GB002 Doering & Marstrand - Vancouver

Minimum Bid: $400

Range:$600-800

Sold: $900

The Doering & Marstrand ginger beer is one of BC's rarest. I have never sold one. The bottle itself is a rare type made by the Brantford Stoneware Co in Ontario. This example has been professionally restored and the job is outstanding. There was work done to the top, the extent of which is impossible to tell. But the result is great; the bottle displays mint.

Sold: $600

A mint example of the scarce Stanley Park Brewery Vancouver. We have sold a few of these in the past years, but none in such fine condition as this one.

The J.R. Bennett Gaden's Aerated Water Works is Newfoundland's only ginger beer bottle. These are scarce and tough to find in good shape. This is the best example I have sold in a very long time. Near mint with only the most minor imperfections.

GB007 McIntyre & Townsend - St John

Minimum Bid: $200

Range:$300-400

Sold: $220

The quart cream coloured McIntyre & Townsend - St John NB is a scarce bottle that is hard to find in good condition. This one is excellent. 1/4" flake off the base edge real. The grey colour you see in the neck is the glaze. Hard to see if the botle was made this way or coloured from burial. Regardless, this one looks great and the colour in the neck adds character.
