The Los Angeles Brewing Company — Brewery Talk Nos. 1 – 20, 1903

"Here is the brewery that produces the finest beer on the Western Coast — Los Angeles beer. Its beginning dates back to August of 1897, when four energetic business men formed the Los Angeles Brewing Co. A desirable site was secured, the necessary buildings erected, the apparatus installed, and in May of 1898 the first drop of Los Angeles beer was put upon the market." -The Los Angeles Brewing Company, East Main Street, Los Angeles, California, 1903

"When I was at Yale, I had a lot of inferiority and insecurity. Growing up meant getting out all those anxieties. You'll find most people who work hard -- make a lot of money -- have a psychological drive that forces them onward and up. I'm no different than anyone else."
