Feigenspan Brewing CompanyEdit

FishingEdit

In 1937 he sponsored seven prizes for Eastern saltwater angling:

This summer, Christian W. Feigenspan, brewer of Newark's Pride of the Nation Beer, sponsored seven prizes for Eastern saltwater anglers. The first six were run-of-the-mine $250 and $100 prizes for largest fish caught between Montauk Point and Cape May. The seventh, which appeared to be a jest, was $100 for the smallest tuna under five pounds caught anywhere along the Atlantic Coast. Actually, the very serious object of the prize was to find a clue to the long-sought breeding places of tuna. All entries were to be sent to the Federal Trust Co., in Newark. [5]

He died on February 7, 1939 in Rumson, New Jersey. [6] he was interred in Fairmount Cemetery, Newark.
