Description
 
In a 1985 illustration of various glasses and containers for draught beer,  Anheuser-Busch lists both a "bucket" (at the unusual size of 55 ounces- a bit shy on a half gallon) and a "wax carton" similar to a milk carton.  At the time, New York State had enacted a mandatory 5˘ bottle deposit and the company was trying to encourage some retailers to switch to selling draught beer to go to avoid charging the deposit and the trouble of accepting returns.
