Ask Real Beer
I am hoping you can help me. I have a friend who will be visiting in
just a few weeks. He collects beer bottles and has quite a collection.
One thing he noted is that he has multiple bottles with names that begin
with every letter of the alphabet, with one exception: Q. Do you know
of any beers that's names begin with Q and where I might call to
procure such a bottle?
From Beer Dave: Q beers have always left collectors in a quandary. The Quandt
Brewery of Troy New York closed in 1942 yet you can still find bottles
in the Upper Hudson River Valley. The Queen City Brewing Company of
Cumberland Maryland used to brew a beer under the name Queens Brau. The
brewery closed in 1974. Bottles of this beer can be found at many flea
markets throughout the Mid Atlantic region. The Quinte Brewery of
Belleville, Ontario, Canada Phone: 613-968-2739 brews a beer known as
