Here are some photos for your brands pages.

First one is Celo in WI. "King George" is in his early 80's and bottles in returnables. The bottles that he uses are about 50 years old now. Most of his sodas taste like they have been sitting there for awhile!
Image

A few hours north of there is Seymour Bottling. Your typical root beer. Every bottle that they use are also returnables.
Image

Now over to Michigan. Here's a National Beverages bottle. I got this from one of the fellas that rescued the bottling equipment and a few pallets of NOS bottles from ending up in the scrap yard. The equipment and bottles are now at Twig's Beverages (WI).
Image

I should have a few more photos for you in a few weeks.

Celo and Seymour, Yes.
National, No. I think they went out of business in the early to mid 80's.

Here are a few more pics.
This one is a 10 oz. bottle from Seymour Beverages:

Twig's (WI) uses blank bottles (no printing, no label). There were a few in the case that said Return For Deposit on them:
Image

Finally, here is the new Spring Grove (MN) bottle. They just switched from a 10 oz. deli bottle to the 12 oz. long neck bottle:

I would absolutely love to get one each of Celo and Seymour to taste. Would you be interested in a trade of any kind?
