The Straub Brewery in St. Marys has brewed beer continuously since 1872. The Straub Brewery is one of the oldest breweries in the United States and one of the few still owned by the original founding family. It is also the smallest pre-Prohibition brewery still in business in the United States.The Straub Brewery has been highlighted in several books written by John Schlimm, the great-great-grandson of Brewery Founder Peter Straub, including The Ultimate Beer Lover's Cookbook, The Beer Lover's Cookbook, The Straub Beer Cookbook, The Straub Beer Party Drinks Handbook, and Straub Brewery .
