Blatz Brewing Company Records, 1862-1944

Container Title
Series: 1. Brewery Records (Milwaukee, Wis.)
Scope and Content Note: The Brewery Records constitute the largest portion of the collection. These records are from the Milwaukee Brewery office, where central business operations were headquartered. This part of the collection consists of day to day bookkeeping records that document many individual transactions involved in running the business, and are useful for understanding the complicated nature of the brewing industry, as well as nineteenth century accounting practices. Of particular interest are the brewer's stamp registers and the denatured alcohol report which show how restrictions on the manufacturing of alcohol gradually grew more strict until National Prohibition became law on January 16, 1920. City customer shipped inventory ledgers give the names of many Milwaukee citizens and businesses that were dealt with Blatz during this period. Finally, the inventory ledgers provide incredibly detailed information about property owned by the brewery, including advertising materials used by branches and customers.
