Random quote: "Dar ir šiandien mes mėgstame pasididžiuoti garsiąja lietuviška tolerancija, kuri betgi pražudė imperiją ir vos nepražudė pačios tautos." Vytautas Alantas (1902 - 1990)

Hello - I was hoping that someone could help regarding an event in my family's history. My grandfather was born in Šiauliai in 1891 and later emigrated to Germany sometime before 1914 (I believe that his family was orginally named Bartaitis). Family history is that my grandfather Wilhelm Barteit's father Adolph was killed in a brewery explosion. Recently I found my grandfather's (and his brother's as well) birth record (scan is attached). It was written in German and gives Adolph's occupation as Böttcher (cooper/barrelmaker). There is also a word on the scan near Böttcher - Gubernie. Is this a town or the name of a brewery ? This job seems to show that his cause of death as told in family history might be accurate.
Now my anyone familiar with the local history of Šiauliai to prove that there was a brewery explosion some time from 1891 to 1910 ? I know it's a longshot, but maybe someone could help me since I'm based in the US and I can't read Lithuanian. Thank you.
