The Anthony Gaertner Brewery began in 1865 and ceased operations sometime around 1870 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. Our information indicates that Anthony Gaertner Brewery was the only brewery that was located in Fort Atkinson, IA 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.
