My great grandfather worked at the g w smith in wheeling (christian Stoehr) for about 20+ years He may have been involved with Nail City Brewery also.Sorry that I don't have any info. I am trying to find more out about the brewery and my great grandfather.
Do you have any pictures of employees or the gw brewery. Christian came from Hesse Germany in 1850 and went to work at g w smith soon after. There was a website huntingtonbeercans.com that I have been corresponding with and another that have a lot of info pertaining to this subject
Please send any info you may have on Christian. I will get the other email address for you also
