  • Notes 
    • CHRISTOPHER NICHOLAS HUETHER.

      Christopher Nicholas Huether, proprietor of the Berlin Lion Brewery at Berlin, Ontario, was born on the 12th of October, 1867, at Waterloo, his parents being Christopher and Martha (Kleeberger) Huether. The name indicates the German parentage. Both the father and mother were natives of Germany, the former having been born in Baden and the latter in Hessen. In childhood days they became residents of Ontario, settling in Waterloo with their respective parents. The paternal grandfather, Adam Huether, engaged in the brewery business in Waterloo and was succeeded by his son, Christopher Huether, while his grandson, Christopher Nicholas Huether, has continued in the same line of business.

      The last named acquired a public and high school education in Waterloo, but put aside his text-books at the age of thirteen years and was apprenticed to learn the brewer's trade with his father. When he had largely mastered the business he went to the United States, where he followed his trade in some of the best breweries of Detroit, Milwaukee, Rochester and Chicago. Upon his return to Canada he took charge of and assumed the management of his father 's brewery, and in 1896 by purchase became owner thereof. In 1900 he established the Berlin Lion Brewery, of which he is sole proprietor. Since which time he has added extensive improvements, the plant now covering an area of one acre, the capacity of the plant being 75,000 barrels per year, trade extending throughout the Dominion, and is one of the most complete brewing plants in western Ontario. He engages exclusively in the manufacture of lager beer, with a bottling plant in addition, and his trade extends throughout the province eastward to Ottawa and westward to Goderich, north to Cobalt and south to Niagara. The excellence of the product insures a continuation of a most liberal patronage, making the business a profitable investment.

      One the 18th of July, 1888, occurred the marriage of Mr. Huether and Miss Christina Fink, a daughter of Paul Fink of Waterloo, who was one of the pioneers of Waterloo county. Six children have been born of this union : Vera, Jacob, Carl, Martha, Georgina and Louisa.

      While living in Waterloo Mr. Heuther served for three years as a member of the town council there. In politics he is Conservative, while fraternally he is connected with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Canadian Order of Chosen Friends, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, the Maccabees and the Royal Arcanum. His religious faith is that of the Lutheran Church.
