Along with its regular line of Heileman products, this brewery produced beers for Boston Beer Company and Widmer Brewing, but does so no longer. Pabst moved its production to this brewery from the now-closed Milwaukee plant. This plant closed after Stroh folded, but it has since reopened as City Brewing.
