The history is a little muddy but here's what's known of the earliest and latest Wainwright brewery:

Joseph J. Wainwright founded one of America's oldest breweries in the early 1800's. Located in Lawrenceville, which is technically part of today's Pittsburgh, J.J.Wainwright's was one of the twenty-one Pennsylvania breweries that merged in 1899 to become Pittsburgh Brewing Company. The Pittsburgh brewing Company in the form of the contract brewing company Wainwright started brewing the special J.J. Wainwright beers in the late 1990's in Lawrenceville using the time honored methods and quality ingredients that J.J. Wainwright used for his select beers.

I do not think this has survived the day but I may be wrong. I found no evidence to the contrary.
