Notox Near Beer newspaper ad (1926)

The Pittsburgh Press, May 6, 1926
There's not much literature available online concerning the Fort Pitt Brewing Company but this ad pretty much confirms that they were an active dry brewery during Prohibition. Notox is described as a "sparkling health brew" which is similar to lager in familiar terms such as "amber depths", "rich nourishment of wavering barley fields", "tang of hops" and "foam stability." I don't know if it tasted any good but the wise owl label has wins me over.
