Bottles

Through the years Lemp used a wide variety of bottles for their beer.  Most bottles were non-brand specific with the exception of Falstaff, their flagship brand.  Falstaff Beer was marketed in its own type of bottle, distinguishing it from its competitors and even other Lemp brands.
 
Below are examples of various bottles used by the Lemp Brewery through the years.
