Old Crown Brewery, gone but not forgotten

 Old Crown Brewery, gone but not forgotten.

 After closing in December of 1973 the old brewery set idle. Local investor, Karl Jensen purchased the brewery buildings and land, with plans of converting the brewery into apartments, retail space and a restaurant. The renovations never took place. The brewing equipment was stripped out through openings cut through the walls, and after years of vandalism and neglect, the property was condemned. The remaining brewery buildings came down in 1991. Today a used car lot occupies the land where the Centlivre family, once built a great part of Fort Wayne's history.  

Here are a few photos taken in March 1976. Photo credits; Larry Stevens.

DREWRYS CANADA

 Here is an early Drewrys Canadian bottle label. In the late 1880’s Drewrys was one of the largest breweries in Canada. After Prohibition, they purchased the Muessel Brewery in South Bend, Indiana and quickly became a large American regional brewery, prospering until competition forced their closing in 1972. In 2014, Drewrys LTD was form to bring back this nostalgic brew to the South Bend and Chicago area.

BREWED IN THE FORT

Brewed IN the Fort / Craft Beer Festival

 Ask any Brewmaster how he, or she, got started, and you will hear “in my kitchen home brewery”. You just can’t beat the creativity and flexibility of brewing in small batches. If you have ever thought of brewing your own beer, stop by the Fort Wayne MASH home brew club booth, this Saturday at Headwaters Park West. These guys are great with questions, and they will be pouring homebrewed samples all day. Check out the beer list below from Ken Daly.

Three Rivers Chapter Meeting

SMASH UP KID

New Bomber from Birdboy Brewing Company


To all Three Rivers Chapter Members and guests,

The monthly bottle share of the Three Rivers Chapter of the BCCA will be held this Thursday, August 18, 2016 at 7:00pm at the home of Bruce Bennett. Directions  260-490-7190

 To all the members who did not get to attend the Tin Caps game last Thursday, we had a great time despite the fact that the Tin Caps were beaten. The weather was very warm and a bit on the humid side but it did not rain, and we did get to see 2 or 3 really great plays (Made by the Hot Rods of course). The Tin Caps did have one OUTSTANDING play in center field but negated it with more than a couple errors, no home runs, and in general mediocrity both at bat, and in the field. Oh well... a night at the ball park is fun regardless!

I hope to see everyone this Thursday evening at Bruce's house.

Sincerely,
Mike Newton
Secretary - Three Rivers Chapter of the BCCA
