The Michigan Union Brewery reopened as the Ann Arbor Brewery. Kurt Neumann, a longtime resident of "Cabbage Town," as the Old West Side was known, recalled how men from the neighborhood would stop in, fill steins straight from a spigot, and sit around talking and drinking. Unfortunately, other locals weren't as loyal to "Ann Arbor Old Tyme," "Creme Top," or "Town Club"--perhaps because it was all the same beer, just with different labels. The brewery closed for good in 1949.
