History
THIS BEER BOTTLE WAS FOUND BY DAVE READ, A CONTRACTOR DOING RENOVATIONS IN THE PERSONAL RESIDENCE OF DAVID COCKS AND KARLA MATHER-COCKS ON/ABOUT DECEMBER 8, 2012. READ FELT THE BOTTLE INSIDE THE CAVITY OF THE EXTERIOR WALL, WHERE IT HAD BEEN RESTING HIDDEN BEHIND THE HOME’S ORGINAL LATHE AND PLASTER WALLS. CITY ASSESSMENT RECORDS DATE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROPERTY TO BETWEEN 1907 AND 1910. ‘ALBERTA’S PRIDE’ BEER WAS ONE OF FRITZ SICK'S EARLIEST BEER VARIETIES AND WAS POSSIBLY BREWED THROUGH THE 1920S. IT WAS ADVERTISED AS “THE BEER WITHOUT A PEER”. FRITZ SICK FOUNDED THE LETHBRIDGE BREWERY IN 1901 AND FORMED THE ASSOCIATED BREWERIES OF CANADA IN 1928 WITH HIS SON EMIL (WHICH BECAME SICK’S BREWERIES LTD IN 1944). SICK WAS BORN IN GERMANY IN 1859, AND EMIGRATED WITH HIS WIFE AND YOUNG SON TO NORTH AMERICA IN 1883. PRIOR TO SETTLING IN LETHBRIDGE, SICK TRAINED IN BREWING FUNDAMENTALS IN CINCINNATI, WORKED IN BREWERIES IN SAN FRANCISCO, TACOMA, AND SPOKANE, AND ESTABLISHED BOTH THE TRAIL BREWING CO. AND FORT STEELE BREWING CO. IN BRITISH COLUMBIA. SICK’S BREWERY IN LETHBRIDGE BECAME FAMOUS FOR ITS OLD STYLE PILSNER, WHICH IS STILL PRODUCED TODAY BY MOLSON’S BREWING CO, FOLLOWING MOLSON’S PURCHASE OF SICK’S BREWERY IN 1959.

SEE P19950008001-GA *UPDATE* IN 2018, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN AUDIT OF ACCESSORIES, INCLUDING A BOX DONATED BY BERNICE ELDON. ON 2 MARCH 2018, PUNDYK INTERVIEWED THE DONOR’S HUSBAND, HARRY ELDON, ABOUT THE DONATION MADE BY HIS LATE WIFE. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM THAT INTERVIEW: WHEN LOOKING AT THE SYRUP JUG AND THE HONEY JUG DONATED BY HIS WIFE, ELDON SPECULATED, “WELL, I THINK IT MUST HAVE COME FROM HER GRANDFATHER… [BUT]… I DON’T REMEMBER THOSE.” WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE REASON FOR THE ARTIFACTS’ DONATION, ELDON RESPONDED: “… WE WERE MOVING FROM THE WEST SIDE TO THE PARK WHATEVER, AND SHE DECIDED SHE WOULD GET RID OF A LOT OF STUFF, AND THIS WAS ONE PLACE TO TAKE IT, BECAUSE IT WAS OLD, AND IT WAS SOMETHING LIKE THIS, YOU KNOW, THAT YOU DON’T FIND ANYWHERE.” ELDON EXPLAINED THAT HE MET HIS WIFE “IN LETHBRIDGE. BUT, SHE WAS YOUNGER THAN I THOUGHT SHE WAS… WE DIDN’T GO TO SCHOOL TOGETHER, BUT SHE WAS FOUR YEARS YOUNGER THAN I WAS. WE GOT MARRIED WHEN SHE WAS 19, BUT ONLY FOR 4 DAYS, AND THEN SHE GOT TO BE 20… WE MET… THROUGH THE BAP-TEENS. WHERE WE WENT, SHE WENT, AND WE GOT TO KNOW HER – MY BUDDY AND I – AND HE LOST OUT. AND, I KEPT THE GIRL.” HE CONTINUED, “WE WENT TO THE BAPTIST CHURCH, SO WE WERE THE ONLY FOREIGN PEOPLE IN THE BAPTIST CHURCH, BECAUSE ALL THE OTHERS WENT TO CHURCHES THAT WERE SET UP FOR IMMIGRANTS, FOR DUTCH REFORMED CHURCH. WE DIDN’T GO THERE. BERNICE WAS BORN IN ‘39, AND SHE WAS 5TH GENERATION CANADIAN, 4TH OR 5TH… AND SHE MOVED [TO LETHBRIDGE] BEFORE I FINISHED MY STUDY FOR CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT [WHICH] IS FIVE YEARS STUDIES... SO WE HAD TO WAIT UNTIL THE END OF THAT YEAR BEFORE WE COULD MARRY BECAUSE CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS PAID PRACTICALLY NOTHING TO LIVE ON - $50 OR $75 A MONTH.” FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT HARRY ELDON’S FAMILY, INCLUDING THE STORY OF THE FAMILY’S IMMIGRATION TO ALBERTA FROM HOLLAND, PLEASE SEE P19980071002.
