Pilsener Brewing Co. of Alaska opened in 1940 and closed in 1943 it was open for 3 years. Breweries that are only open for a couple of years like this did not have a long time to produce advertising and collectibles so they tend to be more scarce than breweries with more longevity. Breweries that started up right after Prohibition was repealed, up to around the 1950s are the last group that represent highly collectible and valuable Breweriana for the most part. The period after Prohibition was when cans became popular so some of the rarest and most desirable cans come from this period. For cans to be very valuable they need to be rare, and in very good condition in most cases. Our information indicates that Pilsener Brewing Co. of Alaska was the only brewery that was located in Ketchikan, AK sometimes this means that items from a brewery will have extra value in the area it comes from because there are not other sources for local breweriana.
