The newly consolidated company made improvements at the Imperial plant, and the name was changed from Imperial branch to Rochester Brewing “B” Plant. In 1911, the consolidated breweries produced 338,332 barrels of beer. The output consisted of three primary brands: Heim Special, Rochester Bohemian, and Old Fashioned Lager. The Mayflower and Imperial Sealbrands ceased to exist.
Old Fashioned Lager became the company’s staple brand just as it is today with KC Lite a 4.2% alcohol beer in KC Royals Blue (MLB); KC Lager a 5% alcohol beer in KC Chiefs Red (NFL); and KC Malt a 6.2% alcohol strong beer or malt liquor in black, gold & silver…

WHY WE ARE RAISING CAPITAL, AND WHAT WE’LL DO WITH IT With proof of concept a huge success and hyper growth on the horizon, capital inputs are needed for package and production demands in addition to marketing programs and to maintain strong channel partners and management teams.
