Certificate Vignette The Erie Brewing Company History The original Erie Brewing company was founded in 1889 and closed in 1976. It had the Koehler, Olde Pub, and the Imperial brands. Charles Koehler had been a grower of tulips in Holland and then in 1840 he sold his land and sailed to America with his wife. In 1847 he decided that he would become a brewer and established a small plant at 25th and Holland in Erie, Pennsylvania. He had some success with the business and passed the brewing formula to his sons. When he died in 1869, his oldest son, Frederick, together with brother Jackson and partner A. L. Curtze, continued the business as Fred Koehler & Co. Jackson left the firm in 1883 to buy the nearby Kalvage Brewery and both continued to operate independently until they decided to merge with the C.M. Conrad and Cascade Breweries to form the Erie Brewing Co. in 1899. The firm was managed by descendants of Jackson Koehler until 1979 when the company was purchased by C. Schmidt & Sons, Inc.
