Ballantine's Brewery was founded in 1840 in Newark, New Jersey by Peter Ballantine, a Scottish emigrant. His three sons joined the business, and in 1857 the company was renamed P. Ballantine and Sons. By 1879, it had become the sixth largest brewery in the US, almost twice as large as Anheuser-Busch. During prohibition, the company was forced to consolidate, and they manufactured malt syrup to stay in business. The Ballantine family continued to own the brewing company all throughout prohibition; but by the time the 21st amendment was passed in 1933, they were ready to sell, and the Ballantine company was acquired by two brothers, Carl and Otto Badenhausen. The Badenhausens grew the brand through its most successful period of the 1940s and 1950s, primarily through clever advertising. Ballantine Beer was the first television sponsor of the New York Yankees. It was during this period that the brand was elevated to the number three beer in the U.S. It was also during this period that the company grew into one of the largest privately held corporations in the United States. Ballantine Beer enjoyed a high level of success into the early 1960s, however, by the mid-sixties, the brand began losing popularity and the company went into decline. Despite advertising efforts to revive the company, the owners agreed to sell the brand, the company, and all their assets to the Falstaff Brewing Corporation in 1972 and the original Newark brewery was closed. 

This vintage Ballantine's bar top advertiser/organizer was originally designed to sit on a bar and provide a place for the bartender to keep foam scrapers when not in use. The removable blue plastic cup has a compartment to hold the foam scrapers with slots to allow the foam/beer to run down into a larger holding compartment and keep the scrapers relatively clean/dry. Today, this would make a great piece to organize swizzle sticks, cocktail spoons, and other bar tools.
