From the Richmond Examiner, 2/26/1866, p. 3, c. 4

THE CORNER STONE of the contemplated immense brewery of Messrs. Betz, Yingling [Yuengling] & Byer, was to have been laid on the site, below Rocketts, at 2 o’clock on Saturday afternoon, with appropriate ceremonies, but the storm prevented. The stone laying, we understand, will take place this afternoon, if fair.
