Description: John Menninger can be found in business listings as a Brewer and also a producer of mineral waters. Menninger is listed in American Breweries II (Van Wieren, 1995) as opening his brewery on Cook Street in 1879 and closing in 1884. Another Brewery operated by Robert Schleicher is then listed at this address from 1884 to 1897. Interestingly enough Menninger must have regained ownership of the location and is listed once again as operating the brewery at this location from 1897 to 1902. Menninger primarily and perhaps exclusively brewed Weiss Beer.
