Last year someone donated a Jax Beer sign to Elite Repeat. Jax Beer originated in Jacksonville, FL, in 1913, and was sold more than once. The rights were eventually acquired by Jackson Brewing Co. of New Orleans. To make a long story short, a quick bit of research by our savvy volunteers dug up a likely buyer located at, you guessed it, Jackson Brewery Bistro Bar in New Orleans. They bought the sign, had it shipped and hung it in one of their dining areas.
Last month, one of our store managers, Marie Hesser, was in the neighborhood and decided to look up the establishment to see what happened to the sign. She introduced herself to the owners and received a warm welcome! Below is a photo of Marie and the Jax Beer sign.
