Historic Beer Birthday: Edward George Bremer

Today is the birthday of Edward George Bremer (November 8, 1897-May 4, 1965). He was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota and was the son of Adolf Bremer and the nephew of Otto Bremer, who together owned the Jacob Schmidt Brewing Co. after Adolf married the daughter of Jacob Schmidt. Because of his wealthy father, Edward was kidnapped in 1934 and held for ransom in a case that attracted national attention.

Below is his obituary from the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner in 1965.
