Description

Bireley's was a non-carbonated orange flavored drink created by Frank Bireley in 1923, in Oakland, California. It was bought by General Foods in 1943 and became popular in Japan and Thailand in the 1950s.
There was district office and bottling operation for Bireley's in Atlanta from around 1936, given that there were many job listing ads for the company in the Atlanta Journal.
It seems to have died out in popularity in America in the 1960s after Frank Bireley's death.
