Fort Wayne Brewery Labor Contract

Inflation is an amazing thing, it would take a brewery workers’ entire weekly pay in 1915, to buy a case of beer today

This 1915-1918 Labor Contract covered Fort Wayne area brewers and bottlers working at the Berghoff Brewing Association, C. L Centlivre Brewing Co., Joseph Schlitz Brewing Co., Buckeye Brewing Co., and the Wayne Wine Co. Schlitz of Milwaukee and Buckeye Brewing in Toledo are included in this local contract because they maintained bottling and distribution warehouses in Fort Wayne at the time.
