Description:  A history of the Stegmaier Brewing Company, Wilkes-Barre, PA. Its products were an important component of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s identity for decades. Founded in 1857, the company thrived and failed twice in its 117-year history. The Stegmaier swtory is one of industrial expansion, considerable capital investment, and the evolution of a complex industrial facility. It is the story of scientific brewing technologies, the production of high-quality, distinctive beer, and the development of a fiercely loyal base of customers. Finally, it is a story of the preservation of an architecturally magnificent industrial complex, once doomed for destruction.
