Henry and John Mauer 1875-1884

Henry and John Mauer opened this brewery in 1875, according to Federal tax records, and brewed lager beer. Henry and John were brothers from Hesse Darmstadt. in 1870, they owned a brewery in Marlin. In 1877, Henry's name was no longer associated with the brewery, and it had passed into John's hands. In 1885, Henry was living in Seattle working as a brewer.

Local legend has it that John Mauer had ties to the Lone Star Brewery in San Antonio, established in 1884. Little more is known. Charlotte is next found as a widow living in El Paso in 1919.

Originally listed as Henry Warner, I beleive the name on the tax application may have been misread.
