In the city of New York the progress of brewing was slower than in other parts of the state. Here we do not find a new brewery until 1823, when the Croton brewery was established, owned by Miles & Bacon. In 1825 Abraham Nash established a small brewery in Troy, out of which later developed, in 1845, the brewery of Nash, Beadleston & Co., of New York City.
