There were three distinct breweries on two sites in Mason City over the early years of the city. Some historians have not always separated the two sites but have at times combined the sites as one. However, the locations were almost two miles apart and there is plenty of evidence to indicate that these were separate establishments.
The first site was on Carolina Street just north of Fourth Street northeast and on the south side of the river. On November 15,1871 Dan and Joseph Farrell sold land in Section 3 of Mason township, Cerro Gordo County, to Samuel Wyatt and Joseph Dorfuer. It was 20 acres of timber along both sides of Lime Creek River (the Winnebago River today).
