I pulled this bottle from the Charles River in Massachusetts two years ago.

I had a very tough time finding information about it but there seems to be a handful of them floating around and I'd like to make this post to collect all the information I've found.

A newspaper clipping from 1903 with an advert left of center listing Albrecht selling "Bock Beer."
https://newspaperarchive.com/boston-daily-globe-feb-13-1903-p-1/

Here is a 1905 Massachusetts Board of Health document listing him as producing drinks under the brand "W.A. Extra Pale Ale."

In the same document, he has two convictions for adding fluoride to his ale.

He is listed as attending a brewer's convention in 1907 in this document.
https://books.google.com/books?id=F...IQ6AEwD3oECAgQAQ#v=onepage&q=albrecht&f=false

Next, a document from a 1917 issue of "The American Bottler" where he is selling a wide variety of bottling machinery for cheap.

So Albrecht produced a pale ale type beer starting around or before 1903 and stopped in 1917.
