The Golden Eagle Brewery was located at 2429 N. Broad Street at Cumberland Street. It was owned by Charles Schwerdfeger and existed from 1892 to 1903. In this clipping from October 1897 issue of American Brewer's Review it is reported that Schwerdfeger's 23 year old son Charles was crushed to death by the engine at the brewery.
