WEST DUBUQUE LAGER BREWERY (THE)
WEST DUBUQUE LAGER BREWERY (THE). West Dubuque Lager Brewery opened in 1857 and closed in 1859. Breweries that are only open for a couple of years like this did not have a long time to produce advertising and collectibles so they tend to be more scarce than breweries with more longevity. As a Pre-Prohibition Brewery, any advertising items or collectibles are likely to be valuable and desirable to collectors as they tend to be hard to find. It was operated by John Stahlman. (1)
