Gerhard Lang Brewing Co.
400 Best Street
Buffalo, New York








The Gerhard Lang Brewing Company had its origins in a brewery operated by Philip Born.  In 1862, Gerhard Lang married Born's daughter and assumed control of the brewery a few years later.  By the time Prohibition arrived, Lang had a very sizable output of about 300,000 barrels.

During Prohibition, Lang produced a wide variety of cereal beverages and soft drinks, including AA Near Beer and Hyan-Dry Ginger Ale.  The brewery reopened after Prohibition was repealed, but lasted only until 1949.
