Vintage Kansas - A Celebration of Kansas City Past!

Excerpts from Kansas City Journal-Post  of May 6, 1938, by E. H. Gallinagh, Advertising Manager,
Geo. Muehlebach Brewing Co.

George Muehlebach Muehlebach Brewery, Kansas City, Missouri

The four Muehlebach brothers who came to Kansas City form Switzerland by way of Lafayette, Indiana, in 1859, have long since parted at the crossroads and passed on with many of their cronies.

George Muehlebach established the original brewery here in 1868.

It prospered for more than a half century till it hit the low tide of 1920 and rocked on the shoals of the prohibition era.

Today the new million dollar Geo. Muehlebach brewery looms among the nation's finest.  It is a glowing tribute to a man whose pioneering foresight inspired him to cast his lot here.

Two sons of this man, George E. Muehlebach and Carl. A. Muehlebach, are at the helm of this new enterprise, vice president and chairman of the board, respectively.

The original brewery site was located at 18th and Main streets.  There George Muehlebach experimented with various imported formulas for brewing.  Out of these were evolved the formulas for the famous Muehlebach Pilsener and Muehlebach Special Beer.

Soon George Muehlebach established himself among the foremost brewers in the country.

Although the Muehlebach Pilsener in the famous "green bottle" was sold exclusively at the bar of the Muehlebach Hotel, Kansas City, up to 1920, it had gained a national reputation as one of America's fines brews.

Today thousands of men and women enjoy this famous Muehlebach Pilsener, ever increasing its distribution and winning new friends.
