Brewing is back in the Tonawandas.
A 70-year brewing drought will soon come to an end in the Tonawandas. Inspired by Prosper Peuquet—the region's legendary brewmaster of the late 1800s and early 1900s—Prosper Brewing will return the tradition of brewing to the area this fall.
Construction is underway at 72 Webster Street in North Tonawanda.
To keep up with the progress, follow Prosper Brewing on Facebook. To take a look back at the history of brewing in the Tonawandas and Mr. Peuquet's influence on it, read John P. Eiss’s detailed account, informed by Prosper himself and his grandson, Leon Peuquet.
