Additional Information

In 1861, James Hanley was an established wholesale dealer, importing, wholesaling, and distributing foreign and domestic liquors as well as wines, whiskeys, and cigars in Providence, Rhode Island.  It started as a liquor store with his brother Thomas and quickly became a series of breweries or possibly a single brewery with a series of name changes including Cooney & Hanley Brewers, the Silver Spring Brewery, the Rhode Island Brewery, the American Brewing Co., the James Hanley Brewing Co., and the Providence Brewing Company.  In any case, James Hanley had a hand in a lucrative business both producing and selling at the second largest brewery in Rhode Island at the time.
