On this page I'll discuss the history of Buckeye Brewery and how I got involved in collecting.

Tid Bits About Buckeye

OVER THE YEARS THE BUCKEYE ADVERTISING DEPARTMENT SPARED NO EXPENCE IN PROMOTING IT'S PRODUCT. MAKING IT ONE OF TOLEDO'S LOCAL BREWERIES THAT HAD A WIDE RANGE OF BREWERIANA COLLECTABLES. WHEN YOU THINK THAT YOU HAVE SEEN EVERY PIECE.... A NEW ONE POPS UP, MAKING BUCKEYE ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER BREWERIES FOR COLLECTABLES.

In the early days Buckeye went under the name of Green Seal Beer. Here are some labels from that era.

Buckeye was always one of the nation's oldest breweries. It maintained its record of continuous operation through the prohibition era by brewing near beer, bottling soft drinks and utilizing its underground facilities for cold storage.

Buckeye was a Toledo landmark for 134 years, from its mere beginning in east Toledo till the closing of its doors at 1501 Michigan St. in 1972. We can trace the beginning to 1838 but not much is know about the brewery till Jacobi and Coghlin took it over in the mid 1800. They were instrumental in turning Buckeye around and making it the largest and the longest running brewery in Toledo history.
