Additional Information: 

Peter Hand Brewing Company was founded in the late 1800s by Peter Hand in Chicago. They were known for their German-style beers, and Meister Bräu was one of their most popular brands. In the 1960s, James Howard and some of his associates purchased the company, renaming it Meister Bräu, Inc. In the early 1970s, Miller Brewing Company took over under the Peter Hand name but closed it in 1978. They used the Peter Hand brand name and introduced Old Chicago, which is used as a play on words for this button.
