Herman Lackman Brewing Company
Cincinnati, Ohio U.S.A.
The Lackman Brewery had strong ties to Price Hill—although it was located on West Sixth Street at Gest Street in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (it later became the site of the Hudepohl Brewing Company), the brewery’s owner, Henry Lackman, lived in Price Hill in a beautiful mansion he had built near what is now the corner of West Eighth and Hermosa Avenues (the house was later owned by bootlegger George Remus.)
When the estate was built, it was located on Rapid Run Pike; Hermosa Avenue was the driveway to Lackman’s home at that time. Henry Lackman eventually developed the land he owned across West Eighth Street to become Elberon Heights, now the Carnation Avenue area.
Brewing was apparently the Lackman family business; another member of the family, Herman Lackman, owned the United States Brewery, which was located in the southern part of the West End, near the Mill Creek. And all these breweries supported a prodigious number of beer gardens and saloons, in Price Hill and elsewhere.
Herman Lackman Brewing Co. opened in 1890 and closed in 1919 it was open for 29 years.
With a frontage on Sixth Street, extending from No. 503, corner Stone Street, 300 feet, to No. 525, it runs back 200 feet to Carlisle Avenue, and on the latter rises a monument, indeed, to the founder of the business.
