Christian Krauch, Delaware's "Father of Lager Beer" and one of the most significant figures in the state's brewing history, was buried in an unmarked grave at Wilmington & Brandywine Cemetery in 1870. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of his death, we seek to honor Krauch with a long overdue memorial marker. Won't you please help us acknowledge this Delaware pioneer of brewing with a contribution to his memorial fund?

Latest Update

The Krauch monument is in place. Join us for the unveiling and dedication ceremony at 11 a.m., Sat., 10/23/21 at Wilmington & Brandywine Cemetery, 701 Delaware Ave., Wilmington, DE 19801.

This article about the Krauch Memorial was just published in The Museum of Beer & Brewing's Summer 2021 newsletter. In June, we place the order with Pauley Memorials for the Krauch monument. Unfortunately, Pauley's supplier is unable to provide a delivery date due to the backlog they are experiencing as a result of COVID. The marker may not be received and installed until the early fall. We apologize to our donors for the delay but will keep you updated when we received further word.

Gratitude is offered to Washington Lodge No. 1 AF & AM of Wilmington for their generous $500 contribution to the Krauch Memorial Fund. Krauch was a member of this very lodge in the mid-19th century. What a terrific tribute for the lodge to honor their brother! (Pictured here is John Medkeff receiving the donation from Worshipful Master of the Washington Lodge No. 1, James R. Hanby.)

Here's the final proof of the Krauch memorial. The stone is currently being cut and we anticipate installation will occur within the next 8-10 weeks. Thanks to John W. Pauley Cemetery Memorials and the Wilmington & Brandywine Cemetery for their help with this project.

In the meantime, there's still time to donate to get us to our goal. Won't you please support this Delaware beer heritage project with a contribution? Thank you!
