1896 to 1923
Huebner Brewery was located at Hamilton and Divison Street
in Toledo,Ohio. At one time it was the largest brewery in Toledo. This was in the early 1900, but after prohibition it never
reopened. The building is still standing and you can still see some of the faded lettering of"Huebner Brewery" on the back
of the building.
Shortly after the turn of the century four breweries in Toledo including Grasser and
Brand formed a brewery conglomerate thus the name Huebner-Toledo Breweries Company.
Huebners Brewery Tid-Bits
It was said that each Saturday
down Hamilton St starting at Brown Ave. there was a steady parade of men, woman and children pulling little wagons, the paraders
going to the old Huebner Brewery for malt to feed their ducks and geese.
In 1938 a 2- alarm fire did $20,000 damage
to the old Huebner-Toledo Brewing Co.building at 355-361 Hamilton Street, this was well after the brewery had ceased operations.
As said before the Giant Huebner-Toledo Brewery once was Toledo’s
largest brewery. A part of the building dates back to post-Civil War days and was first used by Peter Lenk and later by the
Toledo Brewing and Malting Co.
After the Finlay Brewing
Co. on Summit St. closed down Huebner-Toledo used the building for its bottled beer operation.

Thanks go out
to Holly and Brad Huebner for their contribution of some of the photo on this page.
Here is a 1908 picture of a German beer garden at the entrance to the Casino in Toledo,Ohio.
Notice the Huebner Beer sign on the roof.
See how well Huebner Beer advertised in the early 1900 with the two signs at the intersection of
St. Clair and Summit Streets.
