Liberty Brass has been family owned and operated since 1919. Founded by Max Zuckerwise, the company was incorporated in the early 1930’s in New York.
Max was ahead of his time — an innovator who successfully distributed a kit that enabled homeowners to convert their homes from gas lighting to electrical lighting in the late 1920’s. Additionally, he foresaw an end to prohibition and had the company manufacture thousands upon thousands of beer keg taps in 1933. His son Jack used to tell stories of folks coming to the factory and literally throwing money at him in an effort to purchase these taps so they could open a bar.
