A Google search with the words, "Garden City Brewery Chicago", gave the following: The brewery existed from 1901 to 1950 and produced beers with the names "Daisy", "Old Brew" and "Erlangen".

I have a glass stein from the Garden City Brewery with the name PRIMATOR on it. My grandfather was part owner of the brewery. My father told me that the owners hired a brewmaster from Prague. I don't know anything else about it, but I don't think PRIMATOR was a beer.

I have not one, but two, glass beer steins with hinged top with the word "PRIMATOR", on them.

In the middle of the top is a crest with a Lion leaning on a barrel. Surrounding the crest are the words, "Garden City Brewery Chicago,ILL"

On the inside of the lid/cover, on the porcelain is imprinted, "Chicago White Metal Company". This is probably the firm who produced the pewter top.

Primator was the name of their premium beer (according to my 98-year-old Dad). My grandfather (his Dad)was apparently one of the owners in the company.

I have a picture of a tavern in Cicero that my Dad and Uncle owned during World War II. On the front window is the sign: 'Chicago's Best - Garden City Beer.' A friend of mine told me his uncle was a part owner in the firm.

Garden City was a brewery in the Chicago. I believe the plant closed in the 1950s.

I have no specific informantion about the shakers, and I am not sure about the "W" in the logo, but I have an ad from 1936 for a Garden City Brewery that was at 2111-2123 So. Albany Avenue in Chicago. The ad states that the brewery was founed on July 15, 1901. One of their beer labels was called "Primator." It appears to have been a business ran by Bohemian (Czech) immigrants.
