This company was founded by Robert Lee (Bob) Hall, Jr in 1933 after the repeal of Prohibition. He started the operation with a single truck, using a private garage and an old ice house as storage. Among his first brands were Senate and Old Georgetown, brewed in Washington, DC by old Heurick Brewing Company and Gunther. In 1934, was among the first wholesalers in Maryland to be awarded the Budweiser brand.
After Mr. Hall’s untimely death in 1951, the company was owned and managed by his son Robert Hall III. Unfortunately, he too died at an early age in 1961, and the company came under the ownership of his wife Evalina Hall, Josephine Hall Slingluff, his mother, and Josephine Hall Kelly his sister. Evalina Hall (Mitchell) became the President and Leader of the company and remained in that role until she stepped down in 2017. Her role as owner and president of a beer distributorship was quite rare as few women were in that position in the early 1960s. Today, the company is owned by the third generation of the Hall family along with Dan Hoose, the General Manager.
