Joseph Niehaus Brewery  (1850-1861)

“Joseph Niehaus was a native of Hanover, Germany, who had emigrated to America on his own in 1835 at the age of 16. After working at a series of labor-intensive jobs (construction of the Miami Canal, railroad work, and employment in an iron foundry), he began working at Walker’s Ale Brewery in Cincinnati. Around 1850, he established a small saloon and bottling works for ale and porter on Woodward Street (later renamed as 13th Street). By 1861, he had taken on a partner in George Bach, and subsequently purchased the existing Park Brewery…”  Brewing Beer in the Queen City, Vol. V, Robert A. Musson, M.D. (2014)
