THE OLDEST PIECE I HAVE IN MY COLLECTION IS A LETTERHEAD DATED 1876 AND THE MOST RECENT PIECES
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.
