Up until the mid 1890's Fidelio Beer was originally known as H. Koehler Beer. The brewery was located on First Avenue and Twenty-Ninth Street in Manhattan. Fidelio Beer was very popular in Manhattan and Hoboken NJ. The owner of Fidelio Brewery, Samuel Goldberger survived prohibition by marketing a "Near Beer '' and A Purity Brand Malt Tonic. After the Volstead Act was repealed, Fidelio Beer was more popular simply because most of New York’s Breweries failed to survive.

Fidelio was the exclusive brewer of McSorley's Cream Ale. In the 1940s, Fidelio went public changing its name to The Greater New York Brewery. Unfortunately, the President of The Greater New York Brewery was known to be one of the greatest stock swindlers of all time which led to the company's demise. In 1950, The Greater New York Brewery operations were moved to Cypress Hills in Brooklyn, and in 1953 operations ceased.
