1. Germantown Brewery District
Inscription.  Germantown was home to many 19th-cen. European immigrants who brought their trade skills to Nashville, including brewing. By 1865 Germantown was home to 4 breweries: North Nashville Brewery (C. Kreig); Rock City Brewery (F. Kuhn); Cumberland Brewery (J. Ritter); and Coty Brewery (F. Leitenberger). By the 1870s all of these breweries had closed due to the success of J. Stiefel's S. Nashville Brewing Co. and shipments from Midwestern breweries via iced rail cars and riverboats.
 
Erected 2018 by The Historical Commission of Metropolitan Nashville and Davidson County, donated by the Mertie Family. (Marker Number 179.)
