General Note: "Come and Celebrate" the brewery's grand opening to be held February 15, 1897 was an invitation carried on the front page of the local newspaper. "White or black, rich or poor" were encouraged to enjoy a "day of merry making" with food, music, and home brewed beer. A large "cosmopolitan"crowd of "many different nationalities andstations in life" gathered for the festivities.Music, speeches, 20 carcasses of barbequed beef, barrels of pickles, tropical eather and an estimated 400 barrels of lager beer insured a good time. On the large eating tables were placed "two large huge alligators ... set upright holding in their paws a platter of pure Bavarian hops and the best maultsic. Each had a bottle stuck in his mouth ...and one table contained a life size Seminole Indian chief with a crown of Florida moss on his head and the trade mark of the company in his hand.' Although the beer was hearty, the brewmaster, Anton Blrhbaum, said "it will not make a man drunk."
