Fred W. Witte White Beer Brewery

Business Type: Brewery (NY 167 b)

Years of Operation: 1877 to 1903

Location: 96/102 Luqueer Street, Brooklyn

Description: Fredrick Witte opened his brewery in 1873/1874 at 59 Commerce Street in Brooklyn. As per American Breweries II (Van Wieren, Dale 1995) the brewery relocated to 102 Luqueer Street in 1877 and also expanded their name to include: “White Beer Brewery”. Based on the name of the brewery and bottle shapes/sizes that exist, it makes sense that Witte may have strictly produced Weiss Beer.
