I want to say at some point I saw someone dig a similar shaped bottle on YouTube and they said what it was but now I can’t find the video. It wasn’t beer but my brain wants to say it was some kind of brewed alcoholic beverage. I know it’s not crazy old but it does have some good bubbles in it. Thanks for any help!

The seam line and style of the lip indicate it was made well after 1910, as for what was in it I have no idea

Yeah that tracks, my research of the area shows it stopped being a dump site in the mid 1920's and most of what I find there is early teens to the twenties. Thanks!

Figured it out, it would have been a malt bottle. Malt extract I guess?
