Castanea Ice & Beverage – PA 283.1b

Castanea Ice & Beverage opened in 1920 and closed in 1942 it was open for 22 years. Items from breweries of this age tend to be more common and less valuable than some breweries. Early items can still be valuable as can rarer types of items. 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. Castanea Ice & Beverage was in an active brewing city. Lock Haven, PA was listed as having 7 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.

  • Other Notes: No Longer Producing Beer at this point
