The Angeles Brewing and Malting Company was a brewery that operated in Port Angeles, Washington. The company is notable for having owned a steamboat, the Albion, that was sunk in a collision on Puget Sound.


The company began doing business in 1901. It purchased the small steamship Albion to haul full kegs of beer to various cities on Puget Sound. In 1910, the company suffered two major reverses. First it was placed in receivership in April and then in May Albion was struck in a collision at sea and sank. The company kept going however until 1915, when statewide Prohibition took effect in Washington.[1]
