Gluek Brewing Company - Minneapolis
German immigrant Gottlieb Gluek started the Mississippi Brewing Company in 1855. The brewery was located on the bank of the Mississippi River in what would become Minneapolis. The name was soon changed to the Gluek Brewing Company. The original brewery burned in 1880 and was rebuilt.
G. Heileman bought the brewery in 1964 and tore it down in 1966.
