I have a wood box with the name Dick Brothers Beer on it and always wondered how old it was.
9th and York Street
The Dick Brothers Quincy Brewery, was founded in 1857 by Matthew, John and Jacob Dick.
These three brothers founded one of the largest breweries in the United States, and in the early part of the 20th century, Dick Bros brewery was once larger than Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis, Missouri.
When the Dick brothers built their original brewery, it had an annual capacity of about 1,500 barrels of lager beer; within the next 15 years, it would produce about 70,000 barrels.
Prohibition and finally the effects of WWII caused the brewery to be auctioned off under bankruptcy in 1951.
I was emailed the picture,so its not mine to sell.
