The Cleveland and Sandusky Brewing Company was formed in 1897 As a consolidation of the following breweries:
- Keubler and Stang
The first eleven listed were all in Cleveland, while Keubler and Strang was located in Sandusky.
The merger was designed to give the new, larger company a competitive advantage over the remaining, smaller breweries. Later, the advantage led to three other smaller breweries joining the company - Schlather, Fishel and Lorain.
The brewery gained a national following when it began toasting its malt, and also for introducing throw-away bottles.
Among the many brands produced by the company were the Bohemian, Culmbacher, Gold Bond, Crystal Rock and White Label lines.
