Fitzgerald Brewery Site

Historic Site


Fitzgerald Brothers Brewery was one of the oldest and largest breweries in Troy, New York. It was founded in 1857 and is currently in its 6th generation of ownership. The company started out distributing various liqueurs, gins, whiskeys and brandies. A decade later, it began brewing its own brand of beer, Fitzgerald Beer and Ale. Edmund Fitzgerald purchased the Lundy & Ingram brewery on the west side of River Street in 1866 which had been founded in 1852. Troy had 34 breweries at that time.

The site is near the Collar Street Bridge and the Courtyard Marriott at the Hudson River waterfront. During the Prohibition era, the company ceased brewing operations and began a soft-drink bottling business, which is still in operation in Glens Falls, NY. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and is currently used as a high-technology storage facility.
