Brown Derby by Empire Paintover?


Post by jinsequa » Sat Dec 08, 2018 11:51 am

Got this Brown Derby by Empire Brewing (Chicago). It appears to be a paint over. Did not see it listed in the paint over thread so was wondering if anyone had rubbed one of these out and what they found? It appears to be a green metallic can with a silver border under the Brown Derby. Any ideas what it might be with the limited clues available?

From my experience, there is probably a common Miller under there. The green line is pretty strong indicator.
