EBERT & CO.
Ironton Register, May 2, 1878 – Lager versus Whiskey.
From Greenup Independent.
Leo Ebert, Ironton’s well known brewer, has accumulated, during the cool snap, last winter, not less than 1400 tons of ice, and thinks that this will enable him to brew this year 16,000 kegs of lager. Large as this figure may appear, it does not come near his produce five years ago, when he made 36,000 kegs in one Season. But few are aware of the enormous benefit the U. S. Government derives from this source of barley comfort, which forms so material a spring of recreation, health and happiness to our German fellow citizens, as well as to many brethren of American nativity, and which is fast conquering the whisky and brandy evil in the states.
I. R. Sept. 8, 1887 – Ebert & Co. have commenced the erection of an addition to their brewery, 80×46 feet in size, which means an increase in capacity of 10,000 barrels of beer a year. The capacity now is 13,000 barrels.
