Through the years there were several owner changes until Christian Stettner and Otto Thoma took over the brewery in 1886. They operated under the name Stettner and Thoma Weiss beer Brewery. In 1906 they relocated the brewery to 128 – 130 Sidney Street and by 1908 they merged with the Missouri Weiss Beer Brewery Company and operated as a branch until closing in 1913.In 1914 Leonard H. Gross is listed as president and Otto Thoma as vice president and Robert Dougherty as secretary and treasurer. The brewery was located at 130 Sidney and a second location at 2545 A Dodier Street.
