I can't read the lid on my first Ale, but my second one has a Georgia tax lid and I've seen Alabama too.

Very cool ad!

Great looking ad Keith! Cincinnati Beer and Ale was shipped all over the southeastern states. Jeff Musser had quite a few Red Top O.I. newspaper ads at our Ohio MINI-CAN back in June, and they all sold with a quickness.

As far as the question posed about whatever became of Fox Hunt Ale in cans, that's the million dollar question.......

Looking for either Red Top "Old Cincinnati" Beer O.I.!!!!

Leon....plenty of ads but nothing to confirm or deny based on what newspapers were available in newspapers.com. I didn't even see your article.

Interesting, you found bottle ads but no can ads. I got the bottle. You couldn't find my article probably because It did not come from a newspaper, it came from one of my Modern Brewer or Brewery Age type magazines. LEON.
