Additional Information: 

F.A. Poth Brewing Company was a brewery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Established in 1865 by German immigrant Frederick A. Poth, the company did not get a real start until 1887 when Poth was able to purchase land on which to build a brewery. After Poth's death in 1905, his sons sons inherited and continued to run the business, then renamed F.A. Poth and Sons. Like many breweries in early 20th century America, it was forced to close in 1920 when new laws declared the production and sale of alcohol illegal. During the years of operation, the brewery produced several beers and lagers, including the Tivoli Export pale beer.
