Maker Gutsch Products Co. Sheboygan, Wis

Maker Details Gutsch Products Co Brewery opened in 1926 and closed in 1933 it was open for 7 years. This listing was active during Prohibition which makes it an oddity. Some breweries were able to stay in business by producing "near-beer" which was very low alcohol, some switched over to bottling sodas or other beverages, some became Ice-houses or other related businesses. Gutsch Products Co Brewery was in an active brewing city. Sheboygan, WI was listed as having 8 breweries, which is quite a few. Other Names Used by this Brewery: aka Manitowoc Products Co.
