Beaming with History

Sylvia Beam of Lititz and Dick Stoll of Lebanon both of whom have ties to PA Michter’s Distillery, recently shared memories of the famed establishment at Stoll & Wolfe Distillery.

From The Beam Boys in Kentucky to PA Michter’s and now Stoll & Wolfe in Lititz – talking family, history and whiskey at Stoll & Wolfe Distillery. Honored and excited to play a small role in helping preserve Charlie Beam’s legacy in Pennsylvania whiskey history.

“Charles was one of the ‘Beam Boys,’ as they were affectionately known,” Sylvia said proudly. Sadly, the facility fell into disrepair, and eventually closed its doors for good on Valentine’s Day in 1990. By the time the last barrel rolled off the line, the national landmark, which produced “The whiskey that warmed the Revolution,” was known as the smallest commercial distiller in America.

Trained by Beam, Dick Stoll, of Stoll & Wolfe whiskey of Lititz, was the final master distiller at Michter’s. And despite all he and Sylvia have in common, surprisingly, they only met recently for the very first time.” Read more of Lititz Record’s article here.

Thanks for taking the time to come out and discuss. We’re honored to play even a small role in helping to preserve Charlie Beam’s legacy, contributions to Pennsylvania Whiskey (Bourbon and Rye) and the knowledge he passed on to Dick Stoll.
