Fav,

The Magnus Root Beer Co. was started by my great grandfather Joseph A Magnus. Prior to prohibition the family was in the spirits business. With prohibition they started making root beer rather then whiskey.

I'm not sure how long the family stayed in the root beer business although from family stories it lasted until the mid to late 30's.

Your jug most likely dates from the 30's. If yours is like mine there is also a spigot on the back side of the jug.

If I get any more information, I'll send it on.

Maurice
