Anheuser-Busch Stoneware Syrup Dispenser, St. Louis, MO. Circa 1910

Pictured is a stoneware syrup dispenser with a brass nozzle advertising Anheuser-Busch beverages for 5 cents.   Circa 1905.  This may have been used for their Malt Nutrine drink possibly which was a pre-prohibition era and prohibition era drink put out by the brewery.   The Anheuser-Busch company was the first United States brewery to use refrigerated railroad cars to ship their product across the countryside, and subsequently set themselves up to be the first brewery to franchise locations outside of their main headquarters in St. Louis, MO.
