History

With all the new technological changes taking place in the brewing industry during the turn of the century, the established American brewery owners knew that the needed modernization of existing plants would be a tremendous capital undertaking. By selling out to the foreign investors, former owners had the choice of pocketing a huge profit and perhaps staying on as consultant or manager, or simply taking the cash and leaving the impending problems of modernization to the new owners. Michael Brand chose a humanitarian undertaking after selling his brewery to the United States Brewing Company. He used the profit from this sale to establish the German settlement, Brandsville, in Howell County, Missouri, in 1895, a source of refuge to immigrant Germans who were still flooding the shores of the United Stares.
