Richter Brewing Co.

Richter Brewing Co.
Ludington St.
(Bet. Stephenson Ave & Oak (16th) St.)


Richter/Delta Brewing Co.'s

Dates AB II # Brewery Name
(1900-1919) MI-127 Richter Brewing Co.
(1919-1926) n/a Richter Beverage Co.
(1926-1933) n/a Delta County Bottling Works
(1933-1940) (MI-128e) Delta Brewing Co.

AB-II lists the Richter Brewing Co. as being a singular brewery with no successor. However, upon my research while visiting Escanaba last summer, I discovered that the Richter Brewing Co. went in the "beverage" business upon prohibition like many of the other brewers. This is supported by listings in the 1919-1925 Michigan State Gazetteers. It appears that it became the Delta County Bottling Works. After Prohibition's repeal, the brewery was re-opened as the the Delta Brewing Co. and survived until 1940.
