one of the chief industries of all leading countries.
Nineteen hundred .and eleven recorded the most re?
markable epoch in the history of the Jacob Ruppert
Brewery. The largest beer stockhouse in the world was
completed and equipped with the best and most modern
machinery ever installed in a brewery. When the pres?
ent plans and buildings now under construction are com?
pleted, which will be this year, the Jacob Ruppert Brewery
% will be one of the three iargest breweries in the world.
We desire to thank the millions who appreciate our
efforts in producing the pure, unadulterated beverages that
go out under our name and seal, and wish to drink a health
to all for the New Year.
The Beer That Satisfies
Our methods of producing pure, wholesome bottled beer
for family use are not excelled by any brewing house ?any?
where. The beer, first of all, is made from choice sc.ections of
the highest priced materials that can be obtained. After it has
been fully aged and clarified it is forced through pipes direct to
the bottling machines and there automatically bottled and
sealed without coming in contact with outside air or human
handling. From the bottling machines the beer is placed in
steel cases, which protect it from sunlight exposure, and is de?
livered through dealers direct to homes, where it is served
in perfect condition and more pure than water drawn from the
well or a mountain spring. For sale by all dealers and on
draught at first class hotels, cafes and restaurants.
