Brewers' files

Sub-series consists of research materials relating to individual BC brewers or brewing families. The sub-series originated in three very large files Evans maintained, titled Brewers A-H, Brewers I-P, and Brewers Q-Z. In each, material was clipped together by brewer with a covering sheet with the brewer's name. To facilitate access, the archivist has created a separate file for each brewer's bundle. File 1 (Brewers A-Z) contains the cover sheets for brewers for which no material was accumulated.

For some brewers, Evans seems to have moved the bundles to the associated brewery files in sub-series 2 through 9 - e.g. bundles for Charles Doering and Otto Marstrand appear in the file on the Doering and Marstrand Brewery (F-316-3-5-0-7). All such bundles have been left in place in the brewery file where Evans moved them.
