The Beer Barrel Man is a mascot logo first used in the 1940s by the Milwaukee Brewers, a Minor League Baseball team based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the time, he was known as Owgust.
With a beer barrel for a torso and tap for his nose, the beer barrel man embodied the whimsical spirit of the minor leagues in the early to mid-twentieth century.
In the 1940s and 1950s, a whole series of Beer Barrel Men were used as logos by the club - pitching, batting, fielding balls and running the bases.
The Beer Barrel Man was used until Spring Training of 1953, when the Boston Braves displaced the Brewers in Milwaukee. After the Braves moved to Atlanta in 1966, the Beer Barrel Man made a comeback as the first logo of the new American League Milwaukee Brewers.
