I seem to remember that there was what I thought was a brewery over in the 500 block of Segur (west of Broadway). Maybe it was just a warehouse. The building is still there but no sign of what it used to be. I tried to find out about it on AREIS Online but there was no history going back that far. The library has a picture of the Acme Sucker Rod Company from 1902 (it seems a substantial building) with the workers under a quote from "Golden Rule" Jones, a mayor of Toledo from that era. It was on Segur.

I'm not a long time resident, but:
1024-1028 Summit St Finlay Brewery
- 300 S St Clair Grasser and Brand Brewery
- Hamilton/Division Huebner brewery (I'd love to get one of their bottle openers if anyone ever sees it)
Hamilton/Division Toledo Brewing & Malting Co (renamed to Huebner)
- 1501 Michigan Ave Buckeye Brewery
Lafayette/Superior Streets Hoppe&Strubb Bottling
Michigan/Cherry Vogelsang, Lang, and Eagle Brewing
26-34 Superior Maumee, City, Bavarian, Woolner, & Lubeck Brewing (was mafia owned/connected)
Oak/First Home Brewing, Koerber Brewing
(*'d buildings still standing)
It could be a bottling factory, a warehouse, or just an industrial building with a former brewery ad painted on the side?
I remember the Treu House of Munch was located on High Street and Maumee Avenue. About a half block away from Segur Avenue. This was their location till they moved in the 70's to Wales Road.
I found this on their website -
boy that didn't seem to link correctly. Sorry I can never figure that out when I use the ^^^^Link^^^^ feature above.
Latina, Treu House of Munch was not a brewery, it was a distributor for Stroh`s Beer which was brewed in Detroit.
Before Treu was on High street it was on Dorr & Smead. But the city wanted to extend Smead Avenue 3 blocks farther south to Indiana Avenue. Consequently Treu's warehouse on Dorr was razed and the firm relocated to High Street.
I know that it was not a brewery. That is the neighborhood that I grew up in and is what I can remember that was in that area, a beer distributor. I have asked family members and none remember a brewery. I am waiting for my father to ask his friends. If someone remembers I will post it.
I thought it was a brewery because of the beer trucks. It could have been a warehouse though. I cannot find the insurance maps on the library's site now, but they used to have fire insurance maps from the 1890's to the 1920's that showed lots of places that existed.
