G. Heileman Brewing Co.

This La Crosse, Wisconsin brewery was founded as the City Brewery, but renamed when Gottlieb Heileman's partner John Gund left in 1857 [Apps].

In 1996, Stroh's bought Heileman, continuing most of their production, but closing plants. In 1999 Pabst brought Stroh's, selling many of their brands to Miller. The La Crosse brewery is the only surviving Heileman plant, now home to the City Brewery, which makes their own beers and does an awful lot of contract brewing.

Heileman purchased an awful lot of breweries, and certainly maintained more regional brands than any other large brewery. I'm assuming that the Heileman brands that didn't end up somewhere specific, mostly with Miller or Pabst, don't exist anymore.

Up to Pabst, All the way up to index.
