Ale-8-One bottles, circa 1940-59

A display of Ale-8-One bottles in the lobby of the Winchester plant, July 2, 1990. The bottles shown are returnable bottles that were used from 1940-1959. According to spokeswoman Samantha Jackson, the company isn't sure why they chose "It Glorifies" on the front label but there are many differing opinions. That saying was last used on a returnable bottle in 1983. The current returnable bottle features the nutrition information on the reverse. Eighty-nine years after it was introduced at the Clark County Fair, Ale-8-One's packaging and branding is getting a 21st-century update. Photo by Stephen Castleberry | staff
