Augusta Brewing Co of Georgia

On the front page of this newsletter is an old postcard of the Augusta Brewing GA plant. And to the right is a Belle of Georgia bottle label for Augusta Brewing.

The following info was taken from Paul Garber's web page. The article was written by Robert Pavey of The Augusta Chronicle.

In July 1888, a Kentucky businessman visited Augusta to discuss a dream: opening Georgia's first brewery. Today, his descendants hope to resurrect the tradition. Edward W. Herman, president of the Kentucky Malting Co. of Louisville, liked the city's Southern appeal and moved south. His dream came true in February 1889, when Augusta Brewing Co. opened at 13th and Fenwick streets downtown.

Its first beer, Belle of Georgia, was an instant success. The brewery's product line grew rapidly in a market with few - if any - regional competitors. Other beers included Dixie, Extra Lager and Belle of Carolina ``export quality'' beer, as well as so da waters, colas and ginger ales.

The brewery continued to prosper into the early 20th century, adding several new buildings, a ``brew house'' and administrative space. Prohibition came to Augusta on May 1, 1916, however, and the prosperous home of Belle of Georgia beer eased toward an uncertain fate. The company changed its name to Augusta Ice & Beverage and replaced its quality brew with nonalcoholic ``near beer'' i n hopes of staying solvent.

By March 6, 1921, the company announced its bankruptcy in The Augusta Chronicle, which noted that soft drinks ``would not yield the monetary returns as did alcoholic drinks for which the machinery was intended.'' The Augusta Brewing Co. buildings were demolished in 1964. But the company's history remains very much alive, said Edward W. Herman's great-grandson, Doug Herman of Martinez. ``Then Prohibition came in and wiped out the brewery,'' he said. ``It went bankrupt, but it wasn't forgotten.''

Mr. Herman, as president of Beverage South Corp., a wholesale beer distributor, hopes to someday resurrect the family brewing tradition and bring Belle of Georgia beer back to Augusta. ``We're considering reintroducing the beer, calling it Belle of Georgia like in the early days,'' said Mr. Herman, whol has re-registered the Augusta Brewing Co. name for possible future use. ``If that's successful, and there's enough interest, we may even consider opening a micro-brewery,'' he said. ``We have the authentic history, and we have the family lineage.''

Columbia SC Dealer/Buyer Dinner Fri Feb 21

The biggest bottle show in the southeast will soon be here: the Feb 21-22 show in Columbia SC. The Friday Feb 21 hours are noon to 7:30pm, after which everyone is run out of the building (for security lock down) and heads for dinner. I was thinking that since so many friends will be in town for the night, why don't we pick a restaurant where everyone can meet Friday night for some bottle chat and good eats?

Ran this idea by the show chairman Marty Vollmer and we've agreed to tell everyone to meet at 8:00pm Friday night at the nearby Chili's restaurant. So if you're in town, please drop in and make it a festive occasion. We can make reservations at Chili's an hour in advance, so if you want to go just let Reggie know before 7:00pm Friday so I can put you on a reservation list to phone in. Tables sizes are 4 and 6. Reggie will have a dealer table at Columbia.

Directions: Chili's is about 3/4 of a mile north of I-20 on the left hand side of Two Notch Rd (#7715 Two Notch Rd is the address). Phone at Chili's: (803) 699-1843.

Georgia Digging Rights Petition

Bill Wrenn is circulating a petition from the Peach State Archaeological Society to the State of Georgia. This petition would allow the recovery of artifacts (in our case, bottles). Need Georgia residents to sign the petition so Georgia diggers don't lose the right to keep the bottles they dig. If you attend the Feb 1 Rome Ga or Feb 21-22 Columbia SC show, then see Bill Wrenn or Ken Nease to sign the petition to protect diggers' rights. For questions, Email Bill Wrenn at

Gill Pollard Insulator Painting

Blue Ridge Insulator Club

This month we give a plug for the newly founded Blue Ridge Insulator Club, who have agreed to join the Greensboro NC Bottle Show in November to make it a joint Bottle/Insulator show. Doing a joint bottle/insulator show may be an idea that other bottle shows want to consider to boost dealers and attendance.

The 2003 first quarter meeting of the Blue Ridge Insulator Club will be February 8, 2003, at the home of Tim Galusha, 15418 Fox Haven Lane, Midlothian, VA 23112. The meeting will be at 10:00am. BRIC is dedicated to the education and preservation of the insulator hobby. Anyone interested in the hobby is welcome to attend. The hub of BRIC is located in Southwestern Virginia, with members throughout Virginia and North Carolina.

Gill Pollard and Bill Meier setup this web page for the club: Gill recently sold one of his paintings (shown to right) on eBay, with proceeds going to Bill's ICON site.

Outdoor Bottle Event Jan 4th NC State Fairgrounds

The Southeast Bottle Club sponsored an outdoor Bottle Sale on Saturday January 4th at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC. Reggie was setup along with a few other dealers including Scott Berry, Marshall McMasters, and Dean Haley. Was hoping we would have more dealers, but this was a last minute event which didn't give much planning time. And the weather was nice but cool, probably colder than most dealers would have liked. But boy, was there a lot of buyer traffic, supplied by the other three indoor shows running that day. And there was a good number of regular bottle collectors that came by. Reggie setup at 7:00am, and there was still a steady stream of buyers until he started packing around 4:30pm. As with bottle shows, most of the high-end buying happened early. But the latter part of the day was a good time to move low-end items and meet with new bottle collectors. Sure you will see some new faces at some of our next events.

Here are a couple pictures from the event - click to see close-up:

Don't try this at home! Scott Berry juggling 3 bottles, and he never dropped a one.

Reggie did his setup under a canopy, using a drop cloth to make a wind break on one side that made a big difference in surviving the cold windy day.

You've seen the 3 CENTA bottles, but here's the larger 12 oz 5 CENTA bottle that was made to compete with the 5 cent Pepsi and Coke bottles. The 3 CENTA bottle was made 1940-41 and competed successfully against the 5 cent Coke and Pepsi. The 5 CENTA bottle was made for only one year in 1942. People stopped buying it because they would rather have a Coke or Pepsi instead of a flavored soda, so the 5 CENTA bottle put the business under. The 5 CENTA bottles are rare, as attested by the $305 bid price on eBay. Info courtesy of seller, Henry Clay.
