Paper Labels On Root Beer Bottles

It is not known when paper labels were first applied to bottles of Root Beer. The early 1900s would be a good guess. Prohibition (1920-1933) may have been one of the busiest periods for Root Beer paper labels. Beer and Root Beer bottles were usually amber in color because they were ideal in preserving both beer and Root Beer.

Many a beer bottle had Root Beer paper labels applied during prohibition by companies such as Anheuser-Busch when they were forced to stop making beer and began producing Root Beer.

All a beverage company had to do was wash, sterilize, fill, slap a new label on the returned bottle and back out to coustomers it went.
