1Title:  Leisy Brewing Company Records     
 Creator:  Leisy Brewing Company 
 Dates:  1838-1975 
 Abstract:  The Leisy Brewing Company was based in Cleveland, Ohio. It began as Isaac Leisy & Co. in 1873. Once Cleveland's largest independent brewery, it had branch agencies in Ohio, western Pennsylvania, and Indiana, and gained a reputation for its Premium Lager and Budweiser beers, before that became a brand name. Production in 1890 was over 90,000 barrels, and rose to 355,000 barrels by 1917. When the company closed in 1959, (Ohio instituted a $.36-a-case tax) it was the oldest brewery in Cleveland and one of the longest surviving family-operated breweries in America. The collection consists of incorporation papers, patent and trademark papers, clippings, a company history prepared by Bruce R. Leisy, papers relating to Otto Leisy's early life, scrapbooks, bottle labels, advertising posters, pamphlets, and a monthly sales record book.
