In 1890 the finest German-style beer in the nation flowed from the taps of the Chattanooga Brewing Company. It grew to a six-story brewhouse that occupied an entire block of Broad Street, producing over 150,000 barrels a year, until Prohibition forced the brewery closure. Nearly a century later, two crafty engineers brought together by their mutual love for beer embarked on an adventure to brew something great in the city they both love. With that, a new chapter for Chattanooga Brewing Company commenced, one rooted in the German-style ales and lagers that put its namesake on the map over 100 years ago.
