Nassau Brewing Co

Business Type: Brewery

Years of Operation: 1899 to 1916

Description: Formerly named “Budweiser Brewing Company” owner William Brown agreed to change the name of his brewery to Nassau Brewing Company in 1898 after a lawsuit was filed by Anheuser-Busch. The brewery specialized in lager and although closed in 1916 the building still stands and is now a National Historic Registry.

Blob top variant embossed “Nassau Brewing Co. Borough of Brooklyn New York” This is the only design I have seen although there is a crown top version as well.
