The Eagle Brewery was the oldest brewery in Saginaw started in 1854 by German immigrant John Wolfgang Rosa. The Brewery started in the family homestead and eventually grew into a full brewery with a bottling works. His son John T Rosa started working in the brewery at age 14 and after traveling to Detroit and Milwaukee to gain experience he took over the family business with his brother. Their sister Marguerite remained in the beer brewing business when she married local Saginaw brewer Luis Darmstaetter which you can read HERE. The Eagle Brewery counted a tradition of quality beer until they sold the brewery in 1914. Only 2 years after the sale of the brewery, it was destroyed by fire in 1916 and was never rebuilt.
