Historical Sketch

 

The Reisch Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery in Springfield, Illinois for more than one hundred years, was established in 1849 by Franz Sales Reisch, a German immigrant from the Grand Duchy of Baden.  Reisch was born on January 24, 1809, in the village of Niederhausen.  At the age of seventeen, he became an apprentice to a cooper in Alsace, France, across the Rhine River from his home.  In 1832, Reisch left Germany, travelled up the Mississippi River and settled in Beardstown, Illinois in 1833.  After returning to Germany in 1837 to marry Susan Maurer, Reisch came back to Beardstown and opened a cooper shop.  In 1840 he bought a farm on Richland Creek in Sangamon County and continued his trade as a cooper.  Reisch later sold this farm and purchased another farm about eight miles fromSpringfield.

 

The Reisch family moved to Springfieldin 1846.  In 1849 Reisch opened a small brewery at Rutledge and Herndon Streets in Springfield.  The brewery’s annual production was 150 barrels.  Between its opening in 1849 and 1862, when Reisch’s oldest son Frank became a partner in the firm, the brewery operated under a number of different names depending upon the name of Reisch’s partner at the time.  Reisch and Helmle, and Reisch and Bretz were two of the names under which beer was sold. 

 

When legislation prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages in Springfield was passed in 1853, Reisch went into the brick-making business and became a partner in a grocery store.  Prohibition was repealed in 1855, and Reisch returned to the brewing business.  Reisch’s son Frank (born January 19, 1842) became a partner in the firm in 1862 and the name of the brewery was changed to F. Reisch and Son.  In 1868, Reisch’s sons, George (born. January 3, 1846) and Joseph (born February 22, 1850) joined the firm as partners and the name was changed to F. Reisch and Sons.  That same year the brewery expanded to eleven buildings.  In addition to a greatly enlarged brewing house, there were two ice houses, two malt kilns, a malt house and a large stable.

 

Franz Reisch was killed on August 18, 1875, when he fell from the third story of a building under construction as an addition to the brewery.  After his death his sons, Frank, George, and Joseph continued to operate the business under the name of F. Reisch and Brothers.  By the turn of the century, the brewery’s capacity had increased from the original 150 to 100,000 barrels a year.

 

Frank Reisch died on May 22, 1896.  In 1903, the brewery was incorporated under the name of Reisch Brewing Company and George became president of the firm.  He served in that position for thirty years. He was also a member of the Park Board for four years, served one term as alderman, and was a member and organizer of both the Sangamo Club and Illini Country Club.

 

Joseph Reisch died on August 9, 1918.  After George Reisch’s death in 1936, his sons, Carl M.

(1883 or 1884-October 31, 1974, Walter S. (1902-April 17, 1971) and George F. (1882 or 1883-January 22, 1962) operated the brewery.  Carl acted as president of the company, George as vice-president, and Walter as secretary-treasurer.  By the mid-60’s, the company could no longer

finance the re-tooling and automation necessary to compete with larger breweries.  In 1966, the Reisch property was sold to Springfield’s Memorial Medical Center.  The Southern Illinois University School of Medicine now stands on the old brewery site. In addition to the brewery, the Reisch family owned land in Springfield, central and southern Illinois, and Nebraska.  They also owned and operated the Spring Creek Coal Company and were instrumental in the creation of the Citizens Street Railway System and Peoples Electric Railway Company.

                                                                   Scope and Content

 

The Reisch Brewing Company Records, 1862-1961, consist of 9.45 cubic feet and 221 oversize bound volumes of correspondence, financial reports, ledgers, cash books, day books, and journals.  The collection does not represent a complete set of Reisch Brewing company records for the time span indicated, but are the records salvaged from the brewery before it was destroyed in the mid 1960’s.  Documented in the collection are the financial operations of the brewery and the Reisch family’s other business interests, and relationships with other companies and individuals. The records are divided into four files:  Correspondence File, 1868-1953 [1925-1952]; Subject File, 1880’s-1960 [1930-1944]; Financial Reports File, 1917-1961; and Oversize Bound Volumes, 1862-1952.

 

The Correspondence File, 1868-1953 [1925-1952] (Boxes 1-14), is arranged chronologically and contains letters received and copies of letters sent.  The years more heavily represented (1926, 1927; 1934-1952) have been arranged alphabetically by the correspondent.  Much of the correspondence concerns advertising; including correspondence with Collins-Kirk, Incorporated, a Chicago advertising firm; and C.L. Venard, a Peoria, Illinois film producer and distributor who handled the Reisch account for advertising trailers shown at movie theaters.  The end of the correspondence file contains material from the George Reisch Investment Company, the Mary Reisch estate and Wahl-Henius Institute (beer quality control) reports.

 

The Subject File, 1880’s-1960 [1930-1944] (Boxes 15-18), consists of an alphabetically arranged folders and covers a wide range of topics, including the brewery employees, insurance, law suits the brewery was involved in, taxes and financial material.  The file also includes material on other businesses the Reisch family had interests in such as the Marshall Bottling Company and the Spring Creek Coal Company, both of Springfield; and Pike County farms.  A 1914 anti-saloon petition is also included in this file.

 

The Financial Reports File, 1917-1961 (Boxes 19-21), includes financial statements and quarterly audit reports of the brewing company.

 

The Oversize Bound Volumes, 1862-1952 represent a wide variety of accounting and financial records, and include ledgers, day books, cash books, bank account records, customer accounts, beer sales, letterpress books of account records and correspondence, and tax records.  Besides brewery records, several of the bound volumes concern the Reisch family’s real estate holdings and rentals.  Volumes relating to the Marshall Bottling Company, the Spring Creek Coal Company, and the George Reisch Investment Company are also included.  Two volumes concerning ice sales, and an 1864-1866 membership account book from the Springfield Turnverien or Athletic Club, are also included in this file.  The final volumes are indexes for as of yet unidentified volumes of customer accounts from the years 1915-1922.
