History Note:
Why would Anheuser Busch advertise with a corkscrew like this? The bottle cap wasn’t invented until the 1892 by the Crown Cork Co. of Baltimore and not widely used until into the early 1900s. Before the bottle cap was introduced most all bottles had corks including Medicines, Perfumes and Alcohol.
