I have had this Mirror for quite a long time . I had the intent to in time cut the Indian scooping water that is etched into glass and frame it . The Mirror had a crack when I acquired it . It has been in my storage room a long time as you can tell . It is a heavy piece to hang .
Weber Beer went out of business in 1958 in Waukesha Wi . The building is still standing .
n 1857, Henry Meyer opened a brewery on this spot. In 1862, the bankrupt brewery was sold to Stephen Weber. The new brewery remained part of the Weber family until 1958. During that time it was known as “West Hill Brewery,” “Bethesda Brewery,” “Weber Brewing Company,” and “Weber Waukesha Brewing Compa

The business was operated as the Waukesha Dairy Company during Prohibition. The Weber family produced beer and the brewery developed a regional following. Trademarks included an Indian dipping water from a spring and a big red “W”.

In 1958, Weber merged with a nearby Fox Head Brewery and operation ceased at this building.
