Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Julius Lehrkind was a German immigrant who came to America in 1860. He opened a brewery in Davenport, Iowa, with his brother, Fred. There he married Emelie Lambach and had six children. Fred married Emelie's sister, Bertha, and had four children. Fred and Bertha died young, so Julius and Emelie took charge of their children. Emelie died in 1897. Julius married Emelie's niece, Lina Lambach, in 1899 and they had a son. Julius died in 1922. Julius sold his brewery in Iowa and moved to Bozeman in March 1895, bringing his extended family and a crew of experienced brewers with him. He bought the Spieth and Krug Brewery that same year, moved it to the north end of town, and renamed it the Bozeman Brewery. During Prohibition, the Lehrkinds ran the Lehrkind Coal and Pure Ice Company out of the building and had branch operations in Livingston, Montana to which most of the records in this collection pertain.
