Founded by Andrew A. Schramm (who later served as president), William Bayha, Charles Conner, Joseph Korn, and William Schempf, the brewery was located at 31st and Jacob Streets. It boasted a four-story brew house and a 150 barrel brew kettle capable of producing 40,000 barrels per year. Put out of business in 1914 when the Yost Law enacting state prohibition was ratified by the West Virginia State Legislature, the brewery was converted to a match company and was later used by Wheeling Tile. The buildings were demolished in 1976.
