Aberdeen Brewing Serving Tray, Prima Lager Beer, Aberdeen, WA. Circa 1905

Here is a beautiful pre-prohibition era serving tray from the long defunct Aberdeen Washington brewery. This particular tray is colorful, and advertises proudly their Prima brand of bottled lager beer. The use of a nice patriotic USA colored shield helps provide more color and eye appeal. One of the fun facts about this brewery is they used a slogan, “the beer which made Milwaukee jealous” in their advertising for their lager and porter style brands. This was an obvious knock on the more famous breweries which were located in Milwaukee at that time, including the Joseph Schlitz and Pabst family breweries, amongst many others.
