The Continental Brewing Company was a very successful Philadelphia brewery that operated in the late 19th Century up until Prohibition.  It was original the Joseph Smyth Brewery (circa 1870) and was sold and renamed the J. Gardiner & Co. Brewery in 1874.  In 1883, it changed ownership and names once again, becoming the Continental Brewing Company.  It survived until Prohibition, reaching a capacity of 80,000 barrels per year, but did not reopen after Repeal.
