Impactful and scarce Tin over Cardboard sign from the Lemp Brewery in St. Excellent graphics with two bears on each side. Great condition with minor wear. Cerva was produced during prohibition to help keep the brewery afloat since they were legally banned from brewing beer starting in 1920. Unfortunately, the Cerva soft drink formulation did not survive for more than a few years since the sales declined.
So the brewery property remained idle for a few years just before prohibition was repealed. Upon repeal, the brewery was never able to regain a foothold to start back up. Both the Cerva and the Lemp beer brands became a part of the companies long forgotten history. Measures approx 6 3/4'' x 4 5/8'.Louis - Salable Without Government License - Non-Intoxicating Beverage, Lemp St. Great color and graphics, and a really clean back. The Stand Pat Easel on the back is unused. Zoom up and notice wear, marks, etc and enjoy.
