Cask Labels # 49; Cremo Brewing Co., Inc of New Britain CT

There are many things to like about this label which I can date fairly accurately to 1933/4. It is a cask label for a naturally carbonated dark beer. It does say fully aged, but I suspect not cask conditioned, that would have attracted the “Keep cool, not pasteurised warning”. Cremo Brewing Co, unusual name, some would have used a less complimentary adjective, but the brewery operated under this name from 1905 until prohibition in 1920, so was well established. And finally the city of New Britain, however I should tell you that it is also known as New Britski, because of the large Polish migrant population.

I also think it is very attractive.
