The Lion Inc Brewery – PA 849c

The The Lion Inc Brewery opened in 1933, we do not have records that show when the brewery closed so we can only guess. 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. The Lion Inc Brewery was in an active brewing city. Wilkes-Barre, PA was listed as having 9 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.
