  • Notes 
    • Lion Brewery, Christopher Huether, King Street, Waterloo - This business was established twenty seven years ago, and since its inception has steadily and rapidly advanced in volume until at the present day it holds a prominent and enviable position among the larger breweries of the country. The premises occupied are 70x250 feet in dimensions, and the brewery is three stories in height, with hotel in front, which is four stories. All are solidly built of brick, and the architecture of the hotel is imposing and artistic, and an ornament to the street. The brand of lager manufactured is the celebrated "Lion" brand, which has a wide-spread reputation throughout Waterloo and Perth counties, where the sale extends. Employment is furnished to nine competent hands in the brewery, and four heavy teams are used in the delivery business. The brewery contains thirty-two fermenting tubs and all the latest and most improved machinery and appliances, while the engine is 25-horse power. The annual output of the brewery is 10,000 barrels, and the malting capacity is 15,000 bushels per season. In the hotel there are forty well lighted and ventilated and comfortable bedrooms; seven parlors, neatly furnished; dining-room, office and bar. The menu is excellent, and contains all the delicacies of the season as well as the substantials, while the cuisine is unsurpassed by that of any other chef in this section of the county. Accommodation is made for both transient and regular boarders, the rate being $1.00 per day, with special rates to regular boarders. Mr. Huether, the genial and popular host, is a native of Baden, Germany, and is a gentleman of much business executive ability.2a
