Ask Real Beer

February 2000

I am trying to locate any information you may have regarding a company called Buffalo Brewing Co. They are out of Sacramento I believe and they have been out of business for some time. I have their beer logo on a sign (wooden and old, great condition) and I was just wondering if it had any monetary value. If you could help me I would surely appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your time.

From Beer Dave: The Buffalo Brewing Company of Sacramento operated from 1890 to 1949. The piece you have however is a reproduction and holds a value of around $25. They reissued this piece in the late 70's when the Buffalo Brand was contract brewed in California and Oregon. I suggest that you hang it in your home bar.
