Shoutout to

There was a post yesterday at about the lithograph of the mass killing at Mankato (mentioning an article on This American Life ) that is featured on the tray by Standard Brewing from the same town ( see our page here ). I emailed the author to let her know about the connection and AntiqueBeerTrays was mentioned on their Facebook and Twitter.

Kind of cool to learn a little more about this history of this event. Below is a picture of the tray and image from the article.
