Auckland Star, 10th May 1893
Fire at Opotiki,
The Brewery here was totaly destroyed by fire last night. It was insured in the Union Office, but I am unable to ascertain the amount. The property was valued at 1,000.
Upon inquiring at the local office of the Union Insurance Company we are informed that the company has a policy over an old brewery know as "Skipper's" to the extent of 75.
