General Note: The construction of Florida's first brewery was no easy task. The extreme summer temperatures were conquered by the use of then relatively new inventions, De La Verne refrigerating machines. These devices maintained the cellars at a constant thirty-two degrees. Climate control was vital to brewing lager beer, America's favorite malt beverage. Also of new design, the Pfauder Vacuum fermentation system filtered the air to insure that bacteria did not have access to the fermenting brew. The brewery was designed after the Castle Brewery in Johannesburg, South Africa. It was said that "the latest and most successful machinery for beer-making and refrigerating has been placed in operation, regardless of expense" so as to make the product "'second to none in the United States, or probably in the world;"
