Today is the birthday of Henry Miller (February 6, 1857-August 19, 1902). He was born in Pennsylvania, and was originally a furniture salesman. But later in life he co-founded the Duquesne Brewing Company in 1899, serving as its first president. They were one of the first breweries to pasteurize their bottled beer, the original Duquesne Lager and Silver Top, which quickly began outselling local and out-of-state competitors, and turning the business it into a large regional brewer. But in 1905, they merged with 16 breweries in the area to create the Independent Brewing Co. of Pittsburgh. They survived prohibition and by 1940 were the nation’s eighth-largest brewery, but closed for good in 1972.
