Ward's Best Bitter bottles or jugs

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen any bottles from the 1920. Looking at how beer was sold at Beer Off's looks like by jug or sealed bottle. Can anyone help?

In the 50s I used to go to the off licence of a nearby pub for my dad - 6 empty bottles in a bag to be filled up for his Saturday might drinking session. Terrified in case I was questioned as I was year under age for buying alcohol - I think you had to be 13. Sounds stupid that you were trusted that it was for an adult. Not sure when this law was changed. 

I also remember going with my mum aged about 3 -4 to buy Guinness from a shop off- licence for my nan - again we took our own bottle. Same in the 60s/70s you could buy drinks like Scotsmac and take your own bottle to be filled and I am sure a neighbour used to buy red wine this way.
