Our Approach

Over the years those interested in the history of the Quincy breweries have scoured the newspaper archives and listened to the stories passed down by employees of the breweries and those who lived during the breweries' period of operation.

The purpose of this site is to serve as a repository of sorts.  First, to document the history of the breweries that operated in Quincy, IL.  Second, to document the artifacts that the breweries left behind.

My Story

I became interested in the brewing history of Quincy, IL back in 2015.  What I thought would be a story of small local businesses turned into a story that spanned over a century and across multiple states.
