George Burgess Brewery – IA 79a

The George Burgess Brewery began in 1866 and ceased operations sometime around 1871 meaning it was open for approximately 5 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. George Burgess Brewery was in an active brewing city. Des Moines, IA 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.
