Chicago Co-operative Brewing Association – IL 20c

Chicago Co-operative Brewing Association opened in 1884 and closed in 1888 it was open for 4 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. As a Pre-Prohibition Brewery, any advertising items or collectibles are likely to be valuable and desirable to collectors as they tend to be hard to find. Chicago Co-operative Brewing Association was located in Blue Island, IL, which only had 4 breweries, so there are not many that that were producing breweriana items. Local collectors may pay a small premium over national or general collectors because of a lack of local items.
