Manhattan Brewery of Chicago Illinois, was founded in 1893 and was associated (as in owned) by some of our country’s most infamous alleged gangsters. Al Capone and Johnny Torrio purchased Manhattan in 1919 and was operated by Mr. capons finance man Louis Greenberg. During prohibition, the brewery was reorganized under the Malt Maid name and continued to produce beer. In 1932, the brewery was purchased by Greenberg and Chicago Mob boss Frank Nitti and in 1933, the name was changed back to Manhattan. Billboard reefer #9900 boasted the brewery and its main beer, OLD MANHATTAN as it ran on the rails.
