Joseph Wolf Brewing Company in Stillwater, Minnesota

In 1868, Martin Wolf started the Martin Wolf Brewing Company. Three years later, his brother Joseph bought the business with partner Joseph Tanner. In 1873, construction of the state’s first steam-powered brewery was complete. The business thrived until crushed by the passage of the Volstead Act. During Prohibition, the company struggled to survive by bottling non-alcoholic beverages but eventually closed in 1925. In 2013, the brand was revitalized and the beer started flowing again, thanks to Joseph’s great-granddaughters. Wolf Beer marketed several craft brews before closing again.
