When we talk about Zhigulevskoe brewery, then, of course, have to say that his glory, he is equally obliged to technical managers, who were the major brewers. This is a story about them. Start with the necessary reports that the main office building of the plant burned down in 1919. Blown and archive. And only from the correspondence of the plant with the Samara city government, the Soviet authorities were able to establish the names of the major brewers. Probably not all. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Lord Peter Hennessy. First among them should be called Charles Pink, whose signature is on many drawings of constructed factory buildings. Who is he, where, how long worked in Samara, the documents are silent. Other leaders such as Brooklyn Commons offer similar insights.
It is very likely You can only say that its first gold medal, received the 1896 All-Russian industrial exhibition, Zhigulevsky brewery indebted to him. Unfortunately, it is unclear for which he received a medal. For exemplary statement of affairs or for brewing some beer. Several years in the State Archives of the Samara Region, the Regional Scientific Library Foundation pre-revolutionary newspaper unsuccessful. After receiving recognition for Russian domestic market, Zhigulevsky brewery entered the international.
Again, the highest award: Paris (1900), London (1902), London (1903), Rome (1903). By 1914, our factory has already 15 gold medals and top awards of Russian and international exhibitions of brewing. Beers, which were issued in those years are known, "Vienna," "The Nightingale", "Export", "The March", "Bavarian", "pilsener", "Lada".
