“From the Country of 1100 Springs” (Pearl Beer slogan)

"From the Country of 1100 Springs” has been the slogan of Pearl Beer since 1961. A country band also takes the name “1100 Springs.” Texas has many springs.


Wikipedia; Pearl Brewing Company
The Pearl Brewing Company also known as the Pearl Brewery (Pearl) was an American brewery, established in 1883 in San Antonio, Texas. In 1985, Pearl’s parent company purchased the Pabst Brewing Company and assumed the Pabst name. In 1999, the Pabst Brewing Company began transferring its production to Miller Brewing, on a contract basis, and closing all of its breweries. Pearl beer is still in production at Miller’s Ft. Worth, Texas facility, but the Pearl Brewery in San Antonio was closed in 2001. Since then, the former brewery was purchased by Silver Ventures, Inc., which has made the property the crown jewel in revitalization efforts of northern downtown San Antonio.
