About Kessler Brewing Company: Kessler Brewing Company was originally founded by Charles Breeher as the Ten Mile Brewery in 1865 until bought out by Nick Kessler, a Luxembourg-born entrepreneur who’d turned from gold prospecting to other interests. At it’s height, the brewery brewed over 200 barrels of BEER A DAY and more than 24,000 bottles. The plant operated during various economic conditions, depressions and even the 1935 earthquake (and aftershock) which heavily damaged the building and collapsed it’s stack killing two workers. For a time a Northern Pacific Locomotive was used to power the brewery.
In 1886 Nickolas Kessler directed the construction of an entirely new plant at the brewery, furnished with the first refrigeration machine in Montana and the first carbonic acid gas machine to be used in an American brewery. Kessler installed the first glass-lined storage tanks in the state in 1903, and in 1907 he installed the first bottling pipe line in the Rocky Mountain area. He also established a small brickyard at the brewery in the late 1860s or early 1870s. The company operated from 1865 until 1957 when Frederick, the last Kessler son, died.
