Historic Overview

This antique beverage label from Budd Beverages measures 4.25” Wide x 3.8” High and dates back to the 1930s. The Lemon & Lime Soda label features a Champaign glass in the center with the slogan “The Taste Tells”. The drinks were produced by Newport Bottling Works of Newport, New Hampshire.

Budd’s Beverages, Inc. was founded by Alexander Budnitz in 1916, originally planned to serve as a grocery store for the Polish immigrants of Newport, New Hampshire.  In 1922 Budd’s Beverages started using the Newport Bottling Works and began manufacturing carbonated beverages. By the 1930s, Budd’s Beverages was well known for their production of many popular sodas of the day. Some of their special brands included Dartmouth Dry, Fruit Bowl, and Old Sol. They were also distributors for Moxie, Coke, and Ted’s Root Beer (named after Ted Williams). The company served an area that included most of New Hampshire and part of Vermont.

Since winters were cold and much slower, Budd’s had a bowling alley on the top floor to take care of those really slow days. The company ceased operations in 1972.

Hires Root Beer Bottleneck Labels
This vintage root beer label dates back to the late 1960s and measures 4.25” Wide x 2” High. It features the classic Hires logo and went on the neck of the bottle. Known as “The Original Root Beer” Hires is one of the U.S.’s oldest soft drinks.   Charles Hires, a young pharmacist in Philadelphia, developed the recipe in 1876 and it debuted at the U. S. Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. He was in good company since Bell’s telephone, Remington’s typewriter, and Heinz Ketchup were introduced at the same exposition. Legend says that he was trying to recreate a root tea he had on his honeymoon, but nobody knows for sure. Initially he created a powered tea, known as Hires Herb Tea, that was bagged and produced five gallons of drink. Soon after, he developed a carbonated version that became a non-alcoholic “root beer”. In 1884 he began distributing his drink in dispensers called “Hires Munimaker” that simultaneously mixed and dispensed the syrup and carbonated water. He received a patent for Hires Root Beer in 1876, but unfortunately lost the root beer name patent in 1879 when Congress passed a law that you could not register a dictionary word. The Charles E. Hires Company was incorporated in 1890 and bottles were first released in 1893. Charles had three sons that took over the business in 1925 when he retired. Hires Root Beer is owned today by the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. of Plano, Texas.   WE GUARANTEE ALL LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
