Goebel Brewing Company was a brewing company in Detroit, Michigan from 1873 to 1964, eventually acquired by Stroh Brewery Company. In 1839, August Goebel Sr. was born in Münstermaifeld Rhenish, Prussia. During the Civil War, Gobel enlisted in the Union Army's 2nd Michigan Infantry Regiment and fought at Bull Run. In 1873, after the Civil War, August Goebel, Sr. and Theodore Gorenflo founded A. Goebel & Co., and by the 1880s, Goebel was Detroit's third largest brewery. The beer was locally popular in Detroit from the company's inception, but grew in popularity and was eventually available in many states for a brief period in the 1940s, with an ad campaign in Life magazine that featured restaurant ads from many famous eateries around the country using Goebel beer as an ingredient. The beer, billed as a "light lager", was golden in color, and was noticeably drier than most everyday beers of the era. Read more at

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
