A bit of a mystery part 2

An excellent response to this post, thank you to all who responded. I did miss the reference to O’Brien’s Gold Medal brand in David Hughes book.

I believe O’Brien bottled lagers from Allsopp, Wm. Younger and Red Tower. I would guess that this Pilsener was brewed by Allsopp.

Here is the Gold Medal brand label from Phoenix Brewery in Amersfoort, courtesy of Onno.  I thought you might be interested in the design similarities

    Traditionally a gold medal is awarded at trade exhibitions and breweries are proud to show these on their labels. However I cannot find any in 1898 that suits this one. On Wikipedia you can find a list of BIE recognized and non recognized fairs, but….
    So my conclusion is this ‘gold medal’ is just a it is just a fake name for a trademark registration.
    If anyone has a better isea?
