Biography of Conrad Hammer
Erie County, NY Biographies


Hammer, Conrad, Buffalo, is one of the best brewers in the country, having had thirty years experience in the business. He was born in Rhein-Hessen, Germany, in 1851, and came to America in 1867. After working in Buffalo and in all the principal breweries in the West, he returned to Germany, where he took a regular course in the brewing business to more complete his knowledge in this line, and again came to Buffalo, where he engaged with Joseph Haverstraw as foreman for a number of years. This brewery was turned into the German-American Brewery Company, of which Mr. Hammer was foreman for eight years. In 1893 he built the Germania Brewery, corner of Broadway and Bailey avenue, which he conducted for one year and then made a stock company of it, in which he holds onethird interest and is vice-president and superintendent. Under this management the business has thrived, and out of the eighteen breweries in the city it ranks ninth. In politics Mr. Hammer is a Democrat. He is a married man with a family of Six Sons and four daughters.
