Brewery Trivia Shawn Moore Shawn The Rubsam Horrmann brewery closed as the Piel's Brewery in 1963. What year did the brewery open? What are the first and last names of the founders of the brewery? Where did they originate from?

My curiosity is quite peaked because we at one time believed that there was a Rubsam family to go along with the Horrmann family. But, we can find no trace of any Rubsam's...There was the Horrmann castle, there is the Horrmann Library at Wagner College but there doesn't seem to be any evidence that a Rubsam ever existed.

Where did the name come from?
