Additional Information: 

Bunker Hill Breweries was a brewery founded by John Cooper and Thomas Gould in 1821 in Charlestown, Massachusetts. When William Van Nostrand acquired interest in 1860, he gradually expanded production and distribution. His son, Alonzo G. Van Nostrand, originated the “P.B. Ale” (Purest and Best) brand. In the 1890’s, Alonzo became the sole proprietor of the brewery. In addition to P.B. Ale, the brewery also manufactured Boston Club Lager, Bunker Hill Lager, Old Musty Ale, Owl Musty and Van Nostrand's Porter.
