10.  The History of Straub Beer (online at the web site of the Straub Brewery in Saint Marys, Elk Co., PA):
John N. Straub had settled in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania (currently Pittsburgh's North Side) where, in 1831, he opened a "brew pub" which grew into the J. N. Straub and Company Brewery.  Eventually, Straub and Company would merge with Eberhart and Ober to form the Eberhardt and Ober Brewing Company (located at Pennsylvania Route 28 and Interstate 279).  The brewery was located in the building now occupied by the Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Penn Pilsner...  John's sons, Herman and John H., would later become officers in the Straub Brewing Company, located in Lawrenceville, PA (Liberty Avenue and Main Street, North Central Pittsburgh).  This brewery would reach a capacity of 100,000 barrels...
There's no apparent business connection between the breweries founded by John N. STRAUB and his sons in Allegheny County and the brewery founded by Peter S. STRAUB in Elk County, nor is there any apparent genealogical connection between John N. STRAUB of Hesse-Darmstadt and Peter S. STRAUB of Wuerttemberg.
