One such was Liberty Beer, whose logo appears in script. A specialist in breweriana traces it to a business last called the American Brewing Co. of Rochester, N.Y., which faded from view in 1950, at the age of 95. Five-plus decades later, the word "Rochester" is still visible toward the bottom of the ad; it's easier to see if you click the photos for a larger view. But the name of the company at the top — painted diagonally, immediately above "importers and distributors of beer" — is weathered beyond my recognition. Can you identify this company?
