The Plank Road Brewery – IA 159d

The The Plank Road Brewery opened in 1860, we do not have records that show when the brewery closed so we can only guess. As a Pre-Prohibition Brewery, any advertising items or collectibles are likely to be valuable and desirable to collectors as they tend to be hard to find. The Plank Road Brewery was in an active brewing city. Keokuk, IA was listed as having 12 breweries, which is quite a few. Sometimes a large number of breweries can lead to an active collecting community that will be willing to pay more for breweriana items than other collectors.

  • Address Information: Plank Road & 18th St
  • Other Notes: Joseph Kurtz operated briefly but the water was unfit for brewing (minerals that were not friendly to yeast, not an issue of undrinkable water) so the operation bottled "medicinal water"
