1936 Champions Beer Label

Also seen in our recent viewings of Packers vintage auction items is this 1936 beer label. According to the description, “1936 World Champion Green Bay Packers Rahr Brewing Corp. Beer Label. One of the scarcest and most attractive original pieces of Packers memorabilia representing the 1936 World Championship squad. Measuring at 3.5" x 5", the excellent piece pictures Curly Lambeau, Johnny Blood, Don Hutson, Clarke Hinkle and all the team’s “Good Ol’ Boys” from that small Wisconsin town.” If you would like to bid on this item, go here.

Being the amateur historians that we are, we had to see if we could find out more about this brewery. For a modern-day link to this long-ago Green Bay company, check this out. And, for a more overall synopsis of brewing in the history of Green Bay, visit this site.
