The Ballantine family is a New Jersey legend – they founded Patterson & Ballantine Brewing Company in Newark, producer of one of the most popular American beers – the Ballantine Ale.
Peter Ballantine, who immigrated from Scotland, started the company in 1840 and quickly found success.
[The Ballantine Brewery is currently owned by the Pabst Co., which has outsourced the production to the Miller Brewery.]
Peter built a house for his daughter Alice Isabel Ballantine and her husband in Somerset, New Jersey.
The house features 30 rooms, heated in-ground pool, a tennis court and a park size back yard. It is currently listed by Sotheby’s International Realty with a price tag of near $11 million dollars.
