Some breweries were able to stay in business by producing "near-beer" which was very low alcohol, some switched over to bottling sodas or other beverages, some became Ice-houses or other related businesses. Our information indicates that Central Beverage Co. was the only brewery that was located in DuQuoin, IL 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.
