WILLIAM SIMON BREWERY
The William Simon Brewery was the successor to the John Schusler Brewery, founded in 1859. William Simon purchased the brewery in 1896, after a period as Schusler’s brewmaster. It reopened after Prohibition and built a strong local following for its Simon Pure Beer and Old Abbey Ale. The William Simon Brewery managed to outlast all the other breweries in Buffalo, finally closing in 1973.
Our Simon Pure Beer and Old Abbey Ale composite refrigerator cars represent the transitional period of beer transportation when ice was used to keep the product cold prior to the advent of refrigerated cars.
NOTE: After the William Simon Brewery closed, its brands were purchased and produced for a time by the Fred Koch Brewery of Dunkirk, New York, until it too closed in about 1980.
