Inscription. Beer was not forgotten, and six breweries could scarcely supply the people with beer, for Virginia City has a dry climate.
Originally located at 40 North C Street and destroyed by the Fire of 1865, the Union Brewery moved to its present location in 1866.
Beer was brewed in the basement, and the saloon was situated on the first floor.
Fire once again destroyed the building in 1875, and was re-built in 1876.
Since its conception, prohibition was the only evil that interrupted sale, making the Union Brewery one of the longest continuous operating saloons in Virginia City.
 
Erected 1986 by Julia C. Bulette Chapter No. 1864, E Clampus Vitus, to the memory of Duff Chapman.
