This is your chance for a piece of local history. This Truck was bought new in 1934 when Beyrer Brewery opened up right after the Prohibition. The owner Fred Beyrer based out of Chaska, MN would use this truck and the kegs shown in the photos to do deliveries to local breweries.  This truck is one of a kind and this is your chance to own a piece of Breweriana history. 

This truck has a very low reserve at $30,000 this is coming with the original kegs.  

Feel free to look at articles by searching Beyrers Brewery Chaska MN

Below are a few to view

“The Beyrer brewery was opened post-Prohibition Minnesota breweries in that it never bottled or canned any beer,” wrote Doug Hoverson.

Eventually, Prohibition would force the two remaining breweries, the Chaska Brewery and the Union Brewery to close their doors. For the Chaska Brewery, it was the end. The brewery was razed in the early 1920s as Highway 212 was expanded.

For the Union Brewery, soda pop production kept some working until Prohibition ended and new life was born. Fred Beyrer, whose father had purchased the brewery in 1906, reopened the family brewery. The Beyrer Brewery, as it became known, sold kegs of beer from 1934 to 1955, continuing a long family tradition of brewing that dated back hundreds of years.

“The Beyrer brewery was unique among post-Prohibition Minnesota breweries in that it never bottled or canned any beer,” wrote Hoverson.

Also unique was the brewery’s endurance in the face of stiff competition from bigger brewers. “The survival of the Beyrer brewery until the mid-1950s is a heroic tale of keeping small community breweries alive despite impossible odds,” said Hoverson.

According to Hoverson, the Beyrer Brewery was one of only 20 breweries to reopen after Prohibition. More than 30, like that of Leivermann’s, had closed their doors for good.

Those looking to visit the Beyrer Brewery now, however, are out of luck. The Stoughton Avenue property was torn down in 1989. Hoverson said that many of Minnesota’s brewery buildings have met the same fate.

Of the hundreds of breweries that once existed, only two dozen brewery buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.

“Most of Minnesota’s breweries are long gone,” he said. “Even venerable breweries like Gluek’s of Minneapolis and Kiewel of Little Falls now exist only through their colorful artifacts.”

A handful of artifacts from Chaska’s brewing history can still be found, though. In the 1970s, hundreds of Beyrer kegs were sold at auction, meaning the Beyrer Chaska-emblazoned barrels can still be seen spotted in local houses and businesses.
