    “Our company is proud to have been a member of the local brewing scene for the past 100 years”

    Wait, what did F.H. Steinbart’s do from 1918-1933?!

      We are nothing if not flexible! During Prohibition, FH Steinbart sold equipment and ingredients to large commercial breweries that continued to produce “near beer” and soda pop. FHS also sold to wineries that supplied sacramental wines for various religious ceremonies.
