Q&A WITH UHL'S BREWING COMPANY
Q. WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
A. Aaron Uhl
Q. WHAT IS YOUR TITLE?
Q. HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME OF YOUR BREWERY?
A: We dug through the internet and trademark websites. Coming up with dead ends on marketing and names that were already spoken for, we looked up Uhl’s Brewing Co. We were pleasantly surprised to see that no one was using the name anymore, but also found out that brewing in the Uhl family goes back to 1856. Mathias Uhl Brewery, passed hands until it ended up as Uhl’s Brewery and went defunct in 1942. We did a little research and found that we are distantly related to the Uhl’s Brewing ancestors in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. So we decided to rekindle that flame and open Uhl’s Brewing Co in 2020.
