In 1846, he came with his parents to Washington County; the family removed to Kiel in 1856, and about three years later they built this brewery. He enlisted, in 1862, in Co. A. 9th Wis. L; served three years. He then returned to Chicago, where he remained one year. In 1866, he returned to Kiel, and has been engaged in this business. He was married, in 1874, to Johanna Ree, of New Holstein.
In 1858 Bernard and Louis Gutheil started the Gutheil Brewery just east of Kiel at present address 23030 HWY 57. I
