The Christian Schmidt Brewing Company was an American brewing company headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[1] Founded in 1860, it was the largest brewing company in the history of Philadelphia, producing nearly 4,000,000 barrels of beer a year in the late 1970s. When it closed in 1987, it marked the first time in over 300 years that there was no brewery operating in Philadelphia.[2]
