When in full operation, Neuweiler Brewery in Allentown, PA was one of the city's largest employers. Brewery operations ceased in 1968 due to competition from national breweries. However, the Neuweiler recipes and brand names were purchased by the Ortlieb Brewery of Philadelphia, who also purchased the Fuhrmann and Schmidt (Shamokin) breweries in 1966. After the brewery's closure, the F&S Brewery produced several of the Neuweiler beers (Porter, Light Lager and Cream Ale) from around 1970 until closing in 1975. After F&S closed, the Ortlieb brewery continued Neuweiler Cream Ale at the Philadelphia plant until the late 1970s.
The now-deserted Neuweiler brewery complex was recently zoned as part of the Waterfront Redevelopment district in Allentown. The site was purchased in March 2014 with multi-million dollar plans to redevelop the entire property, converting the majority into a new brewing facility. The remainder of the space will be converted to mixed use commercial office space.
