Kurth Brewery was located in Columbus, Wisconsin and operated from 1859 to 1949. In 1914, it was producing about 100 barrels of beer a day, making it one of the largest breweries in southern Wisconsin.[2] A fire destroyed the malting buildings in 1916; however, the hospitality bar remains today at the corner of Park Avenue and Farnham Street and is open Wednesday and Friday nights. The brewery is still owned by the Kurth family.[3]
