I am the 3nd of the eight sons and two daughters of Wm G. Koerber, founder , President and Brewmaster of the Koerber Brewing Company of 2 Oak Street in Toledo, Ohio. His father John Koerber was founding president of the Akron Brewing Company mentioned at length in this site. William's brother, Clarence (Click) Koerber opened the Grand Valley Brewery Co. in Ionia and Friar's Ale and Click Malt Liquor in Port Huron, Michigan while William G. was opening the Michigan Brewery Company from 1912 to 1923 in Detroit, Michigan. See the book, "Brewed in Detroit" by Peter H. Blum. Toledo operations concluded in the early 1950s and Michigan in 1960s.always interested in memorabilla of that grand area in brewing.

I am looking for some information concerning a flat top beer can I recently discovered. I lived in Sandusky, Ohio and we had a distributor called Sandusky Ice which used to sell P.O.C. by the case. When they started tearing down the building I found an old flat top beer can called Half and Half. It was empty but looks as if it had never been filled. I've been looking everywhere but the only tie I can find out about it is that it was brewed by the Pilsener brewery in Cleveland, Ohio. Any information about this beer can would be really appreciated. Thanks a million.

Drifting through the internet, I came across the brewery at Canton, Ohio. My interest lies in the fact that my uncle and father both worked for the brewery. My uncle as the brewmaster and my father in the brew house. I was wondering if there is a chance to buy a Canton Brewery glass. I have bottles and labels from the period before prohibition. My uncle was a brewmaster for the old Peerless Brewery in La Crosse, Wisc. and also Pabst Brewery. The last brewery in Canton, Ohio was The Canton Brewing Company which was torn down in the 1950's. Thanks for your time.

Some 22 years ago, we found- our property here in Ontario, a brown glass 12 oz.bottle with the embossed name of "Renner Brew. Co." and above it a combination "R" and "B" with a "Y" (Renner, Brew. and Youngstown?) in the inside what appears to be a Star of David. Along the botton edge there is embossed "D.O.C.117.", "THIS BOTTLE IS NEVER SOLD" and a large "R"- the bottom. Any information concerning the age of this bottle would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

I loved your site. I recently completed a family history and found several old photographs of my family standing in front of their barn (Circa 1930s and 1940s) with a Renner Beer sign- the barn. I was thrilled to read the story about the Renner Brewery. My grandfather was given a case or two of Renner's Beer in exchange for placing the sign- his barn in Lowellville, Ohio. Thanks for making such a great site available!

These cars were often brightly painted advertisements for many industries in the '20's and '30's, such as meat packers, so other Ohio industries, too! Thanks!

Very informative website! I'll definitely be forwarding this website to others. George J. Renner Jr. was my great grandfather. Actually, I'm the same generation as Carl James (2nd cousin) so G.J.Renner Jr was also his great grandfather (not great great ...). I heard lots about Youngstown, the brewery and relatives from my father but haven't been to Youngstown yet. I plan to go one of these days and would like to research more information about the area's history before I do. So any suggestions of related websites would be welcomed. Thanks, MEG Goldcamp

Hello...

This was a most enjoyable visit for me. I used to live a few blocks from the Burkhardt Brewery, and run through the steep driveway on my way from elementary school. I got yelled at too, but it was okay.

Such memories. I remember the fragrance of the brewery, and my mom used to buy Burkhardt's beer. I tasted it and liked it too.

Thank you for the history. I did shed a tear...or two. (Cried like a baby!)

Great site!

It has the Moerlein trade mark and two angels at the bottem of the lable. It has a stalk of barley and a stalk of hops on it with banners saying exhilarating,stimulating,re-juvenating,wholsome,delicious and pure. I'm guessing 1854 cira. It was found during and excavation downtown Cinn. and is in MINT condition.

Question: Is their a Museum in Ohio that collects old Beer Steins? In the 1920's my father donated his father's metal stein to a museum. It may have been in Dayton. My grandfather was a brewer in KC. I would like to locate it for my family history. Thanks

I was deer hunting some years ago and picked up a green bottle that was one from the Akron Brewery. I have saved it for years and decided to find some history of the company. I was overjoyed when i found your site. I was ve4ry pleased to read the history of Akron Brewery. Thank you for creating this site. Thank you, Robert Collier

My interest stems from a Kuebeler Stang bottle. The KS logo wraps around like a pretzel.

Thank you for your efforts! My sentimental favorite is the Leetonia Brewery, which never made it back after Prohibition. The site stood untouched until after WWII, when it was razed. The property was purchased from my Great-grandfather, and he was the Executor when the original owner died in 1874.

I came onto this web site due to lookimg for info on a beer tray that i have. That is a CENTENNIAL Beer tray , produced by the Christ Diehl brewing co. of Defiance Ohio. I have checked some more of the guest book and find it interesting. I also have and old Defiance Ohio (Large) advertising book of which shows the Diehl Brewery with photos.

Fantastic site! The book, Brewing Beer In The Buckeye State, will probably be another year or so in the making, but it should be worth the wait. Until then, this site covers most of the major breweries in eastern Ohio, along with Don's great photos of brewery advertising and relics. Keep up the good work!!!!
