Both say "Trademark Registered In US Patent Office" under the Coca Cola script on one side, and on the other, "Trademark Registered Contents 6 1/2 FL OZS". The other bottle is identical, except it says "Jellico, Tenn" on the bottom, and it has the numbers "59-33" on the side. There are no numbers on the bottom, just the name of the town and a "C". The numbers I listed are the only ones on the bottles, am wondering if they can date them for me. Also what is the best way to clean an old bottle so as to preserve it?
Not sure why the change, but this is a great disappointment to me.
I would love to see all beer have mandatory bottle dating guidelines.
We expect and use expiration dates on almost all of the food we buy, and although beer does not technically expire I think we all deserve to know exactly when our beers have been bottled.
Jolly Pumpkin: As far as I know all of their beers get a sticker like this on the back. I mean, it doesn’t get more straight forward than that.
Now I know the bigger breweries can’t be putting stickers on every bottle by hand, but I wish more of the smaller ones would do like the good folks at Jolly Pumpkin!
