The Jack Daniel's Beer
On this page I will show you the 7 different Beer bottles that Jack Daniel's made a few years ago. They stopped brewing this beer because it didn't sell that good. Now, years later it is a real collectors item. Enjoy!
What we see on the picture above are all 7 bottles, some coasters, buttons, a smoke cookin'recipes book, a popcorn bag (the white bag at the right) and one Taphandle in the shape of Mr Jack himself (In the middle, clued on the back of an iron coaster).
There are 7 different tastes: Pilsner,Winter-Brew, Honey-Brown Ale, American Ale, Amber Lager, Summer-Brew and Pale-Ale.
Last News: There are 18 different beer bottles out there!
* On my vacation October 2000 in the US I saw 14 (!) different beer bottles. There is a "first run" of the Oak Aged Pilsner (this means only a gold colored label instead of the white and black printing on the label) and then there the "small label" bottles. These labels are 1/6" smaller than the normal big label. (set price of all 14 bottles was $ 500.00 !)
* Also there are some bottles made for California only. These bottles got a refund for the bottle. A little paper neckband around the neck says "5c cash return". A picture of one of this different bottles is a littel down this page.
* Another different bottle is this Black Label Amber lager bottle. It got a Gold cap instead of the black colored cap. Also no neckband.
* .... Yep, a 4th Black Labels Amber lager bottle... A Award Winning Bottle.
* .... Uh...I found a 5th Black Label Amber lager bottle... with a Greece language label .
A signed Honey Brown Ale Beer bottle
John Barrett was Master Brewer at that time JD made Beer:
Here are the close-up's from all regular 7 bottles, front and back.
The Oak-Aged Pilsner and the Oak-Aged Pale-Ale.
The Oak-Aged Hoeny-Brown Ale and the Oak-Aged American Ale.
The Oak-Aged Summer Brew and the Oak-Aged Winter Brew.
And number seven the Amber Lager.
Then there is the Error Summerbrew with the label upside down! From this beer bottle are estimated only 10 cases or 240 bottles made.
On this picture you can see the two different label sizes
The beer was for sale "only in a few eastern US states, here are two bottles with a refund ment for California...(CA)?? On the picture on the left you see 3 different Honey Brown ale bottles. Does this mean that there are 3 different bottles each taste?? I got two Refund bottles, a honey brown ale and a American Ale.
Dated on the side or not....
I got five different Taphandles in my collection. Also a very rare items. The most beautiful one is the one below. There are 7 plastic stickers included to put on the barrel in the middle so it can be used for a 7 different beers. It is very heavy! (the plate under the tap is glued so it can stand upright...). I do not know how many different beer taphandle there are. I have seen 7 so far, one is missing in my collection
Warning: Don't be fooled if you see a Honey Brown ale lucite taphandle like the one in the middle. This is a fake self made taphandle!
Below a picture of the two Amber lagerr taphandles. The 1866 classic taphandle is a real heavy one! I am still looking for the last one that is missing in my collection and that is the Ale taphandle. Its looks exact the same but only with the words Ale on it....
With beer comes off course the beer coasters. there are a couple of them. here is an example:
There are three glasses made for this Beer. Only one was sold to the publick and that is this glass below. It's a nice , full colored glass. A very rare and wanted glass with a estimate value of over $ 15.00!
This glass is not sold to publick as fas as I know. It's not in my collection but if you got it and want to sell it, you know how to find me!
This Beer glass is "just" a sample. It never made the production! It is very rare and I am glad I got this glass in my collection, I do not know if there are more of these glasses made. If you got one please let me know so we can estimate how many made. Value would be around $ 80.00 a glass (!).
Beer Advertise material
On the first picture on this page you also see a round coaster with the words Amber Lager on it. There are 10 different round coasters. Front is the same, the back has different "questions" about the Jack Daniel's beer. One other Beer item I got is a recipe book (folder....) with some nice smoke recipes in it:
One very nice collector item is off course the Jack Daniel's Beer Neon light. There are 3 different Beer neons, I got the most beautiful one in my collection. During shipping the J was broken.... SO it wound light up. I WILL repair it !! It is a real nice peace of work. It is hanging in my kitchen and I look at it every morning and....smile!.
Some other Beer advertisements are these 6 big cartboard/plastic posters. These are in mind and unused condition!
The cap that you could get is shown down this page.
There was a promotion in the beginning when they introduced the beer in the US where you could get a brass opener/spin game.
This is a nice Beer Barrel. It can be used as a dices cup for your poker games! Or to hold a plant.....
No. 1. Gold and Black lettering on white cup. (large cup!)
|No. 2. Black Lettering on a clear plastic cup, on the back a picture of the Brewery. (small size)|
|No. 3. Full color drawing of the brewery printed on a white plastic cup. (small size)|
Not only Amber Lager labels, but these are also never used (so without glue!)
Before we finish this great page I want to share with you this great item. It is my friend K.L. Jones Jr. greatest Beer item in his Jack Daniel's Collection and that is this "Beer Salesman Sample". It's a wooden box with 3 beer bottles and 3 bags of ingredients that where used to make the Jack Daniel's beer back then.
Here are some new close up pictures of the little bags. they are filled with wood, Caramel malt and two-row barley.
