Description

Through this series of Specially Commissioned signed artwork "The History Of American Breweries" we honor the men who created the brewing industry in this country.  The Huber Brewery has brewed for this edition a CLASSIC BEER as it used to be.

This beautiful can (from a set of 18) was designed in 1977 by American artist Stephen R. Kidd, whose work has hung in both the White House and the Smithsonian. The buildings in this painting were accurately reproduced using period photographs and drawings as a reference. The front of this can shows the brewery in autumn surrounded by orange leaves. A cowboy leans against a column with his Germanm Shepherd.
Peter Barbey
Peter Barbey, a bavarian brewer, emigrated to America where he worked initially for dittmer & Butz, Engel & Wolf and then Frederick Lauer. In 1859, with Abraham Paeltzer, he founded a brewery in Reading, Pennsylvania. In 1867 he became the sole owner, calling his brewery Peter Barbey, then Peter Barbey & Son; years later called Sunshine Brewery, which closed in 1971.
