Interboro Brewing Company- In January 1913, the Consumers Park Brewery merged with the New York and Brooklyn Brewing Company, with the new company called “Interboro Brewing Company.” Their brands were “Interboro” and “Bismark.” The New York and Brooklyn Brewing Company plants were closed and all their beer was brewed at the Consumers Park plant.

The Interboro Brewing Company continued in business through 1920, when they closed because of Prohibition. “Consumers Park” also was the name of a train station at Montgomery Street. The stop was part of the old Brooklyn Rapid Transit subway line—later reorganized as the Brooklyn Manhattan Transit (BMT). On November 1, 1918, a train crash occurred in the tunnel of the next station, Malbone Street (Empire Boulevard). It took the lives of 97 people on the Brighton Beach local-express and sent many others to the hospital. Bodies of the fatally injured were brought to the local police stationhouse and to the lobby of Ebbets Field. The Malbone Street crash remains the city’s worst subway disaster. – Times Newsweekly
