Additional Information: 

Fox Head Brewing Company originally began as Waukesha Imperial Spring Brewing Company in the mid-1890s. When Fox Head's brewmaster Albert Kirschstein committed suicide, the company was purchased by Fox Deluxe Beer Sales, Inc., who also owned Peter Fox Brewing Company. In 1958 Weber Waukesha merged with Fox Head, and four years later G. Heileman bought the merged operation and closed both plants. The closing of the plants has been attributed to the rumors of Chicago Mafia involvement with the industry.
