A beer for all seasons - This photo in Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," is of the Henry Schramm Bottling Works. "In 1884 German immigrant Henry Schramm started this bottling company in Fullersburg. Dealing in soda and mineral waters, birch beer, root beer, ginger ale and Weiss beer, he became one of the best-known bottlers in northern Illinois. The sizeable plant and barn burned to the ground in 1905, the worst fire in Fullersburg history."
