Bethesda Brewery


Notice is hereby given to the citizens of Waukesha and the public generally that Charles Minick Sr. and his son, Lewis, who are engaged in bottling and selling beer, have no connection whatever with the Bethesda Brewery, but are doing business for themselves. The beer thay are bottling is manufactured in some brewery outside of Waukesha. I take this means of informing the public that any person or persons buying beer from the said Minicks are not buying beer manufactured by me or at my brewery.


Wm. A. Weber, Prop. Bethesda Brewery, Waukesha, Wis.
