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.
