Milwaukee, WI. 1889, 50 Shares, Black on green border and underprint, Impressive brewery buildings in middle under curved title, with hops and oats at left, S/N 755, issued to Frederick Pabst and Signed by him as president and endorsed by him at back, The Pabst Brewing Company is an American company that dates its origins to a brewing company founded in 1844 by Jacob Best and by 1889 named after Frederick Pabst. In 1863, Frederick Pabst, a steamship captain and son-in-law of Phillip Best, bought a share in Phillip Best Brewing Co. In 1864, when Pabst was taken into partnership in his father-in-law's brewery, he began to study the details of the business. After obtaining a thorough mastery of the art of brewing, Pabst turned his attention to extending the market for the beer and before long had raised the output of the Best brewery to 100,000 barrels a year. In 1889 he changed the name to Pabst Brewing Company, the year he signed this stock certificate.
