The Waikato Brewery at the south end of Victoria Street once produced the local beer, Waikato Draught. This bottle cap bears the well-known brand of Willie the waiter. The drawing of Willie was based on a popular brewery employee, William T. Walter, who had distinctive features, including a prominent nose.
