Notes Trophy Head Plaque Series also included a deer, duck, and several fish. Conrad Pfeiffer started the C. Pfeiffer Brewing Company in 1902 in Detroit, Michigan. Pfeiffer's Famous Beer was a traditional lager. The brewing company continued to make beer until 1972 when it was renamed the Armada Corporation, and the Pfeiffer name was purhased by G. G. Heileman Brewing Company of Wisconsin. Beer continued to be produced under the Pfeiffer name through the 1990s. http://www.pfeifferbeer.com/
