For your consideration is this original Kessler Beer cone top can from Helena, Montana. West of what is now Spring Meadow Lake, on Helena's far western side, was where the Kessler Brewing Company, or Ten Mile Brewery, first opened. 1865 through 1958 saw its operation. Still remaining are a few of the structures. The Kessler name was used by a Helena micro brewery from 1984 to 2000, although the beer was not made in the historic brewery; it was still made in the city. The can shows a blue and black color scheme with blue on the top and black on the bottom. The front of the can shows the Kessler logo and reads "Kessler Beer / Kessler Brewing Co. Helena, Montana / Brewed from Mountain Spring Water". The Kessler beer can is in fait to good condition with rust holes near the bottom of the can and along the vertical seam. The can measures 2 3/5" in diameter and 5 5/8" in height.
