William Gretz Brewing Company is somewhat unique among bicycle beer labels.  While I am not too knowledgeable about their history, I believe they were in business at least from the turn of the century to around the 70's.  For a significant period, probably from the 30's to the 60's, their logo was a man on a highwheel bicycle carrying a pail of beer.  This logo appear on more than a dozen labels.  Those below are in my personal collection.
