New Era Beer Bottle

Internal-screw stoppered bottle, embossed “S. Clayton & Sons/ Bow/ London/ New-Era Beer”, with ‘New-Era Beer’ on Vulcanite stopper. Simeon Clayton & Sons manufactured this non-alcoholic temperance drink (made from hops) at the “New Era Works”, 218 Bow Common Lane, London E, in the 1880s and 1890s. In 1892, it cost a penny-halfpenny a bottle (as advertised).

    I live in Aberdare, South Wales and take my dog for his walks in the woods right opposite my house. This morning I found one of your bottles which had been dug up in the woods. My bottle has BRISTOL not BOW on it.

      That’s interesting Duncan – I didn’t know they had an outlet in Bristol. Thanks for letting us know.

    Hi. I recently found a wooden bottle stopper with NEW ERA BEER embossed on it. Found on the banks of the River Taff, Cardiff.
