GUEST: This is a picture my dad got at an auction for about $30. And of the brewery, this is the only part that was ever actually built.
APPRAISER: The Moehn Brewing Company went out of business during Prohibition. This print was done very shortly after the factory opened, and it would have been a projection of what they thought would happen, given the great sales they were having with beer. At auction, this piece would be estimated $1,500 to $2,000. There's a great word for it; we call it "breweriana." It's a treat to say it. It makes me thirsty.
