Western Brewery – MI 16a

The Western Brewery opened in 1861, 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. Western Brewery was in an active brewing city. Ann Arbor, MI was listed as having 8 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: 416 South 4th St between Liberty & Madison
  • Brewery Owner: Peter Brehm initially in partnership with John Reier
