This Buffalo Brewing Company bottle is made of amber glass, and is embossed with an image of a buffalo jumping through a horseshoe and "BUFFALO BREWING CO/SACRAMENTO, CAL.". Buffalo Brewing Company was founded by Herbert Grau in Sacramento, 1888, but the first beer did not reach the shelves until mid 1890. This one has the type of closure used from 1880's -1920.In 1890, Buffalo Brewing Company began brewing beer in Sacramento. At one time, the Buffalo Brewery was the largest brewery west of the Mississippi with distribution throughout the western U.S., Hawaii, Alaska and even Central and South America. The company shut down beer production at the onset of Prohibition and resumed again when the 21st Amendment was ratified. During Prohibition, the brewery survived by brewing ‘near’ beer and soft drinks, as well as producing ice for local distribution. Ultimately, Buffalo Brewery closed its doors for good in 1942, and the historic brewery building was demolished to make room for the headquarters of the Sacramento Bee newspaper No chips or cracks. Porcelain top and wire closure intact. Bottle is 11 1/2" tall and 12" with the top on. I have a few of these, and all are in great condition.
