New York & Brooklyn Brewing Co.
Business Type: Brewery (NY 106 c)
Years of Operation: 1882 to 1915
Location: 48-60 Scholes, Lorimer & Bushwick Ave. Brooklyn
Description: Several sources list New York & Brooklyn Brewing Co. as opening in 1882. However, according to the following excerpt from One Hundred Years of Brewing it’s possible the business may have opened a few years later: “In December, 1888, Bernard Leavy and Thomas W. Sheridan founded an ale & porter brewery in Brooklyn and thus established the business of New York & Brooklyn Brewing Co”. Although not much additional information could be found about the early years, it is very well documented that New York & Brooklyn Brewing Co. merged with nearby Consumers Park Brewing Co. in January of 1913. Once the consolidation took place the business was renamed the Interboro Brewing Co.
