More than fifty years ago Kred Krug.
president of the Fred Kruit Brewing com
pany, who still enjoyn good health, al
though past 79 years, established tho first
brewery In Omaha. It was a small
primitive, one-man- concorn; Mn Krug"
was brewer, general manager, cashier
In fsct, tho only employer as well as
the only employe.
This little plant was located near Tenth
and Famam streets, In a one-story frame
building, qulto pretentious. In those days,
when the buildings In Omaha did not
number very many. Fred Krug crossed
tho Missouri river young, strong and am
Mtlous, witling to work and endure hard
ships and Incessant toll, and honest deal
ings enabled him to continue Improving
his little plant from time to time, until
In 18S2 he erected a new brewery on
Jackson street, between Tenth and Elev
enth street, until, after adding building
upon building, he was on account of
laclc of room for expanding compelled to
locate on a larger tract, and In 1892 he
Incorporated and started to erect th
present modern plant at Krug avenue
and. Twenty-fifth stneet. Since than the
business has been conducted In tho name
of tho Kcd Krug Drewlng company,
Fred Krutf having tJimod the manage
ment over to his son, William' Krug, un
der whose - mnnagemnnt, 'assisted by his
brothers, Albert, Fred IT.' and J. 31., new
territory has been added continually,
until now tho sales florae covers the entire-
west as far as San Francisco.
In the last six years extensive Improve
ments have been, made to the plant.
Four new (22S-horsepower each) B. & W.
boilers have boon erected, equipped with
automatic stokers, coal and ash con
veyors. These boilers can burn either
coal or fuel oil. Lawe generators, dyna
mos aiul motors havo been. Installed, fur
nishing power and light.
In the bottling department constant re
placing of machinery Is noccsmry, owing
to the phenomenal Improvements accom
plished In tho last ten yearn and tho
great and steadily Increasing demand for

Beatrice Iron Works
Youngster that Has
Astounded with Jtiise
The Beatrice Iron works was incor
porated In 1907; starting with a machine
shop with a floor space of 4,000 squa-e
ftet. Today It covers 21,800 square foit.
In 1008 a foundry was added and the man
ufacture of Implements was begun; the
first In this lino being tho "Bcatrico"
two-row cultivator and tho "Little Beat
rice" one-row cultivator, both riding.
The sale of these two splendid agricul
tural Implements was very encouraging
and It was soon found necessary to en
large tho plant and Increase its capacity.
Blnco then tho manufacture of gram
drills, alfalfa cultivators and seeders,
land rollers, two-row disc cultivators,
walking cultivators, combined walking
and riding cultivators, road drags, me
"Evans" mower bar and a number of
other staplo and useful Items have been
added to the line. Tho latest addition Is
the manufacture of tho Bercha "Im
proved" grinding mill, a mill that will
grind from eighty to 120 bushels of
shelled corn per hour, depending upon
tho degree of fineness. 'Demonstration
tests have proven it.much superior to an
feed grinder even produced. During tho
last year ono of theso machines ground
10,000 bushels of corn without renewal of
burrs or at any cost for repairs. The
foundry U .well equipped and is prepared
to furnish anything In .tho,,l(rio Bt'griy
Iron oastlngs. A large quantity, of cast
ing, for manufacturers of othar goods are
made here and at, tho present time tfij
electrolier posts for the city of Beatrice
are being made.
