I'd like to see some as well. They are hard to find!!
Old neon from West Bend Lithia out of Wisconsin
Thought I'd post a couple signs that I managed to pick up on Ebay a while back from the brewery that my Dad actually worked at back in the 30's. Not sure when this one was made but I'm thinking the 40's - 50's range? The brewery was closed back in 1972 and the building is still there but with a couple businesses in it now.
Old Timer's back bar sign from West Bend Lithia Co.
Here's the other one that is in pretty primo condition from the same brewery. I like to collect breweriana from the West Bend Lithia Co. which was in the city I grew up in and the brewery that my Dad worked at in the Bottling Room. I have his collection of old beer labels, some of which I have never seen on Ebay yet.
This is a sign we picked up not too long ago, it's a classic Miller beer light. Surprised it still works, but we're glad it does!
I still have a small Guinness sign I bought (overpriced) in Ireland several years ago. I think it's in a box in my closet. One day, maybe I'll have a room to hang it in again.
Don't get any cooler than that!
Latest from Belgium!
It has been awhile since I posted a sign so here is a recent one I managed to acquire. From the world's oldest lambic brewery - Timmermans!

Nice Crown neon, that's my choice when i don't drink beer.
My neighbor has one similar to that with a white and black guy in it, i'll get a pic next time i'm up there.
a gueuze sign
Nice gueuze signs! I especially like the Chateau d'or.
Here is one I have had in my collection for a while. It is stamped metal.
Here's another one. I really like the old signs that show a bottle in a basket.
I really like this one!
Redkeg, been gone awhile. I have one just like it, the DeCoster-Heymans embossed tin of the brewery dating to the 30's. It's definitely one of my favorites. I have more signs and other lambic breweriana posted on a Facebook group I started some time ago. LAMBIC LOVERS is for anyone interested in lambic and sour beers with around 80 people from around the world, including Jean Van Roy from Cantillon. Request to join and I'll include you.
Redkeg, I have seen the Ph. Van den Stock one before and tried to get one. So far no luck. I agree that signs showing a bottle in a basket or even a glass of gueuze are some of the more interesting ones.
I have been away a while also. I would like to join your LAMBIC LOVERS group.
I will also try to put up a few new signs I acquired since my last post.
Gueuze Couronne from 1961
Nice large porcelain enamel on steel one recently acquired.
A sign I bought a couple years ago, made in 1988.
