At age 31, German immigrant George Ehret established the Hell Gate Brewery in New York City in 1866, when the annual production of malt liquors in the U.S. was 5,115,140 barrels. Located between Ninety-second and Ninety-third streets and Second and Third avenues, the brewery was named after a dangerous passage on the East River. From the very beginning, Ehret aimed to brew a beer "as nearly like the best quality of Munich lager as the difference between our water and that of the river Isar would admit." When he died in 1927, Ehret's estate was worth $40 million dollars, and the brewery stayed in the family until it was sold to Schlitz in 1948. This book was issued to celebrate the brewery's 25th anniversary.
