On this day in 1999, the Weinhard Brewery (remember Henry Weinhard’s?) brewed it’s last beer and sold the company to Miller-Coors. Weinhard opened his original brewery in 1862. The Weinhard’s Brewery Complex was put on the National Registry of Historical Places in 2002. When was the last time you had a Henry Weinhard’s? The beer is still made today by Miller-Coors.
Weinhard’s merged with Blitz in 1928 to become Blitz-Weinhard.
