Waukegan Special ROG Brewery Beer Sign, Waukegan, IL. Ca. 1900

Featured is an amazing Reverse on Glass sign from the Besley Brewing Company Brewery which was in Waukegan, Illinois outside Chicago prior to prohibition.   This particular ROG sign might be one of the many brewery signs which were found unfinished in the Western Sandblasting Company find of the 1980’s.   I am not sure however.  The glass sign says “Drink Waukegan Special”, and has an established in 1853 date on the sign as well.   This is a spectacular piece of Chicago breweriana from the pre-prohibition era.
