Licking County has a long history of brewing. Early accounts of the area's history made frequent mention of liquor consumption (primarily whiskey) and the production and consumption of ale and lager would not become part of the industry and social life until the arrival of German immigrants to the region in the 1830s. The earliest record of commercial beer production in licking county was in 1844 with the brewery founded by Michael Morath, an immigrant from southern Germany. Morath arrived in Newark Ohio in 1832. He became a successfully brewer and owner of property around the growing city. Morath opened his first brewery in the southern part of town, south of the canal. Many of Newark's early breweries clustered in the this area and catered to German immigrants and travelers. Morath's second, larger facility opened in 1858 along sixth street, in a large piece of property that served as a beer garden.
