Applied Color Labels on Root Beer Bottles

Applied Colored Labels revolutionized the bottling industry in 1934 when these painted labels were used on Root Beer bottles to identify and advertise. The process of baking colored enamel onto the glass bottle was less expensive than embossing and became much more popular than paper labels.

This method was extended to include Root Beer drinking glasses, Rood Beer mugs and even advertising such as ashtrays.

The most popular and desirable ACL's include those with pictorial labels, with at least two two colors on amber glass bottles. Bottles from closed bottling plants are often quite collectable.
