Casper Maus erected in Indianapolis the Maus Brewer, and the same was operated by him until his death, after which the buisness was continued by members of the family until 1889, when the property and business were sold

The Casper Maus brewery was located at the corner of West New York St & Agnes (now University Boulevard) and was torn down in 1958 to make a parking lot.

It's known that they made " C. Maus's Bock Beer". Joseph Maus was listed as the brewer in 1870.

The first artificial ice plant in Indianapolis was installed at the Maus Brewery in 1881.

It is possible C. Maus beer was bottled by C. Habich & Co. Before ?1870? it was normal to have another firm bottle the beer that was delivered in casks with tax stamps applied at the brewery.

Maus died in 1876 and the family still owned the brewery when it was sold to the merger. The plant continued brewing under the merger with Indianapolis Brewing Company; until it was converted into a distillery in early 1900.

Son of Casper Maus and Magdaleine Dietrich

Frank Maus Fauvre was thirteen years of age at the time of the family removal from Dearborn county to Indianapolis and in this city he was reared to maturity and here has constantly maintained his home during the intervening years. He duly availed himself of the advantages of the public schools of the day, and in 1867 he was graduated in a local commerical college.

He was thereafter associated with his father in the brewery business until the death of the latter, after which he had the general management of the business until the same was sold, int 1889, as has already been stated in this context. Since that time Mr. Fauvre has been prominently identified with the manufacturing of artificial ice, in Indianapolis and other cities, and to his enterprise is due the founding of a number of large and modern ice-manufacturing plants which give to the public the most effective service and insure in the same the utmost purity of product. He is also prominently concerned with coal-mining operations in various parts of Indiana and has accomplished much in connection with the promotion of public utilities of important order.

In 1902 Mr. Fauvre was associated with others in the purchase of the electric unter-urban line extending between Indianapolis and Greenfield, and the lines were thereafer extended to New Castle and Dublin, this state. Mr. Fauvre was a stockholder and excetutive officer of the company at the time these noteworthy improvements were made. He sold his interst in 1905, prior to which time he had ably administered the affairs of the corporation, in the office of president.

He is at the present time president of the Vigo Electric Company, of Terre Haute, Indiana, and a director of the People's Light & Heat Company of Indianapolis. In 1881, in connection with the buisness of the Maus brewery, he built and places in operation the first artificial-ice plant in the city of Indianapolis.

Mr. Fauvre is essentially a progressive and far-sighted business man, and his loyal only in the capitalistic and executive support he has given to enterprises that have conserved industrial and commercial advancement, but also in his ready co-operation in the promotion of measures and public enterprises projected for the general welfare of the community. He is a valued member of the Indianapolis Board of Trade and also of the Commercial and Univesity Clubs. He ia affiliated with Veritas Lodge No. 602, Free & Accepted Masons, and he and his wife are members of the Christian Science Church, to which they transferred their membership from the Plymouth Congregational Church of Indianapolis.

In the year 1880, was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Fauvre, at that time Mr. Maus and Miss Lilian Scholl, of Indianapolis, and they have three sons and three daighters, namely: Lillian M., Madeleine M., Francis M., Julian M., Irving M. and ELizabeth M., all of whom remain at the parental home excet Lillian M., who is now the wife of Mr. Arthur Vonnegut, of Indianapolis.

After the brewery was sold, Frank became an investor with numerous interests (including the Indianapolis Brewing Co., the Broad Ripple Natural Gas Co., and an interurban running from Indianapolis to Greenfield.)

The Maus family name was legally changed to Maus Fauvre (another family name) 1911, due to a combination of anti-German sentiment at the time and the fact that Maus is pronounced and means mouse in German.
