Historical note:

The Frank Jones Brewery did not re-open after Prohibition ended, and the Eldredge Brewing Company brewed ale in the old Frank Jones plant under the Eldredge name from 1933-1937. In 1937 the Eldredge Brewing Company re-named itself the Frank Jones Brewery and re-named its ale Frank Jones Ale. In 1947 the company was sold to the rum distillery, Caldwell, Inc., and operations ceased.
