HISTORY OF SCHAEFER BREWING
Founded in the 19th century by German immigrants, Schaefer Brewing Company operated a plant in Brooklyn for more than a century. While Schaefer Beer still exists as a product produced by Pabst, the original brewery in Brooklyn has been shuttered for decades, though the building still stands.
Many breweries throughout the country, including the Schaefer building in New York, were built and maintained with extensive use of asbestos. For decades, asbestos was used in insulation and fire-prevention materials in a wide range of structures.
REACH OUT IF YOU ARE NOW FEELING THE EFFECTS OF ASBESTOS EXPOSURE
Construction workers and maintenance workers were especially vulnerable to asbestos exposure. Although materials containing asbestos have long since been removed from the Schaefer Brewing Company facility and other older buildings, the symptoms of mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer take years to become evident; many workers are unaware they were affected by asbestos until decades later.
Signs you have been exposed to asbestos include:
- DIFFICULTY BREATHING
- HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
- WEIGHT LOSS
- CHEST PAIN
- FINGER AND NAIL DEFORMITIES
