Piels was founded in 1883 by the Piel brothers: Gottfried, Michael and Wilhelm Piel. Michael began his apprenticeship as a brewer in the old-style subterranean cellars at the breweries of Dortmund, Westphalia. In 1883, when his apprenticeship ended, he joined his younger brother, Gottfried, then already established as an export merchant in New York City. Together they founded in East New York a typically German brewery, to be conceived on modern and scientific principles. The soft water from Long Island was preferred by German brewers, and breweries in Brooklyn proliferated at this time. The enterprise prospered and the partnership became a corporation in 1898, an established business of national reputation. The popular demand for the products of the plant — a typical German beer was then a novelty in the American brewing industry — necessitated enlarged facilities. A new era began: the acquired plant was demolished and a new plant was erected. Subterranean cellars made way for a building of cellars above surface, under modern refrigeration. The plant represented a new achievement in brewing construction.

In the 1950s, the Piels brewery had a very successful television and radio campaign when the Young & Rubicam ad agency created Bert and Harry Piel, the fictitious animated owners and pitchmen for the brewery. Harry was tall and soft-spoken, always calming down the short loudmouth Bert when something went wrong. The first Bert and Harry commercials aired December 1955 and ran until 1960. This vintage tray, featuring Bert and Harry, is a great reminder of days gone by.
