Thursday, November 13, 1783   Abram Nash

Abram Nash was born in Ridgefield, Connecticut. In 1817 Nash started an ale brewery in Troy New York. Under his guidance and skill the brewery expanded and soon Nash was eying territory downriver. In 1846 Nash employed his son-in-law, Ebenezer Beadleston to establish a branch office in Manhattan. In 1865 the family sold the Troy brewery to James Daley and John Stanton and concentrated on their booming New York business. Although Abraham Nash died in 1871 the firm he founded in Troy (later known as the John Stanton Brewery) thrived for almost 80 more years, surviving Prohibition and finally closing in 1950.
