Swan Brewery

The previous post of Rick's showed Swan Brewery exhibiting it's products at the September 1871 State Fair. I found this quite interesting since my research shows the Swan Brewery up for auction on March 31st, 1871. Notice that book accounts are due to Decker & Wilmot. I found an article that showed the trademark registration for Swan Brewery in 1876, unfortunately I sent that information to Tom Jacobs and didn't keep it. This looks like a good research article that maybe John O'Neill could pursue.

  1. The Swan Brewery is listed in the 1878 San Francisco Directory. A George Hudson was President (and also an attorney of the firm Hudson and Venable). The Brewery seems to have been located near 15th and Dolores or Valencia.
