Before there was Maier Brewing (Brew 102), there was Maier & Zobelein Brewing. Joe and George went into partnership in 1882. Joe Maier died in 1904 and left his share to his sons. The Maier brothers and George Zobelein got in a fight in 1907 causing Zobelein to leave. He bought 10-year-old Los Angeles Brewing in Lincoln Park (on the opposite side of the LA river from Maier Brewing) and named the new beers he formulated "Eastside". Pabst bought them out in 1953. The brand lasted until 1979.

Jean Harlow christened the first delivery truck to go out after Prohibition ended.
Los Angeles Brewery is now artist's lofts.
The addition to the original building, now with a Pabst sign.
