Export Beer Fischbach Brewery, St. Charles, MO 1950s

This is a rare Export Beer cardboard sign from the Fischbach Brewing Company in Saint Charles, MO, 1950.  This sign features a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. There are two known signs similar in design from this brewery.   This one has a Chesapeake Bay Retriever while the other one shows a Labrador Retriever.  The Fischbach Brewery produced Export, Grand Lager and National brands of beer in both cans and bottles.  The Fischbach Brewery was a fixture in St. Charles, MO until it went out of business in the late 1950’s. Then, Nicholas Van Dyke revived the existing old brewery building when he opened up the Van Dyke Brewing Company in 1967.
