Fousts 1840 Pure Rye Whiskey (1933) Classic whiskey label art printed on wood in the selected format and size Art: The distillery was started in 1840 by William ("Billy") Foust (1835-1920) and his father, John S. Foust (1811-1867) in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania. In 1858, Billy rebuilt the still and expanded production of the famous Foust Pure Rye Whiskey. By 1907, production was up to 3,000 barrels per year. A small brick-and-stone village grew up around the spring-fed hollow that was the site of the still and came to be known as "Foustown". It even had its own column in the local paper. Eventually it grew to include a bonded warehouse and "bottled in bond" bottling facility. After Billy's retirement, the distillery was operated by his 4 sons, Fred C., John Q.A., William F., and Robert. The distillery was re-opened after Repeal but the Fousts sold their interest in it.

This sign is a "Woody", made of 1/2 in plywood with batons on the back and picture hanging hardware. The edges are painted black. Woodys do not require framing.
