Prohibition Era ~ Anheuser-Busch
Budweiser Brewers Yeast Wrapper
5 Pound Bar ~ 1920's
They had to make something during prohibition to stay in business so Anheuser-Busch produced Budweiser Yeast. They sold a 5 pound cake of brewers yeast, wrapped in a sealed wax paper package, much like a loaf of bread. They also sold hops, and other ingredients and items necessary to brew beer. They knew America was drinking as much beer as they were before prohibition and figured whoever was going to make it still needed ingredients and supplies. They wanted to keep their vendors and supply lines open and ready to go when the Great Experiment failed.
A five Lb., 10 x 4 x 2 inch cake of yeast was exactly enough to brew 1 large batch of beer. Beer can not be made without it! This is a Genuine 1920's Original Budweiser Waxed Paper Yeast Wrapper packaged around a foam block the exact size and shape of the 5 pound yeast cake. We found the tail end of a roll with a few dozen complete sets intact. Perfect Condition! Unique Prohibition beer display item. It's red and green graphics are impressive. The Anheuser - Busch Logo is distinctively displayed. It is a classic example of 1920's merchandise packaging. Not to mention a rare prohibition beer item.
