Bottle or Beer?

Ginger Beer Bottle from Austin's Birmingham

There is some confusion over whether the Ginger Beer that this company  (Austins) made was called Galtee More or not.  The name Galtee More on the side of the bottle seems to indicate that it was. But in 1897, a patent was granted in England which was for a type of closure for these earthenware bottles.  Prior to this, a wiring arrangement  that clipped over the neck of the bottle kept the stopper in place but the Galtee More patent used a hole drilled through the neck of the bottle. Apart from Austins, other companies, such as Chippenham,  Griffiths, and the Rhyl  Mineral Water company also used this type of stopper. See below.

A company named Sullivans manufacturerd Ginger Beer in South Africa for some time and used the Galtee More bottles.  These bottles sometimes turn up on eBay.
