Jacob Wernz White Beer Brewery
Business Type: Brewery (NY 511)
Years of Operation: 1865 to 1878
Location: 51 Norfolk Street, Manhattan
Description: According to Antique Beer Bottles of Old New York (Guest, Gary, 2004) In early years Jacob Wernz was listed in business directories as a producer of Milk, a Grocer and a Wine/Liquor distributer. American Breweries II (Van Wieran, Dale, 1995) has the business name listed as “Jacob Wernz White Beer Brewery & Saloon” there are not other breweries listed as operating at this location. Although it cannot be confirmed it is likely that Wernz only produced Weiss Beer at his brewery.
