Ruff-Riedel Brewing Co. – IL 330f

Ruff-Riedel Brewing Co. opened in 1933 and closed in 1943 it was open for 10 years. This brewery was open for quite a few years so it is easier to find items and advertising than some breweries that did not last long, this can make the Breweriana items less valuable. This listing was active during Prohibition which makes it an oddity. 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. Ruff-Riedel Brewing Co. was in an active brewing city. Quincy, IL was listed as having 8 breweries, which is quite a few. Sometimes a large number of breweries can lead to an active collecting community that will be willing to pay more for breweriana items than other collectors.
