End of an Era? Buffalo Brewing to the Sac Bee What’s next?
In 1890, Herman Grau starts Buffalo Brewing at 21st and Q streets, where The Sacramento Bee is now. His stockholders include several successful local brewers, including Frank Ruhstaller, Philip Scheld and Louis Nicolaus. It was the largest brewery constructed west of the Mississippi, with an initial capacity of 60,000 barrels annually. The Brewery continued through 1945. During Prohibition, Buffalo Brewing produced “soft drinks.”
In 1897, Ruhstaller Brewing merged with Buffalo Brewing and in 1913, with the death of Adolph Heilbron, who ran Buffalo Brewing, Frank Ruhstaller Jr. took over as president. For a little more history about Sacramento Brewing check out: Sacramento Brewing History
