Johann Karl Albert Jahreis was a German brewer who came to Hong Kong in the late 1880's to open a brewery. 

Comments

Thanks for this information. Do you know which brewery he worked for, and if it was a success? Unfortunately it looks as though he died not long after he arrived in Hong Kong.

His grave is in Hong Kong Cemetery:

23---/10/12-Hier ruht/ Johann Karl Albert/ Jahreis/ geboren den 27 Januar 1865/ gestorben den 29 Januar 1890# 5224

He was my grandfathers brother. Family history has it that he was in Hong Kong to open a brewery when he was killed. I am searchiung for more information on the cause of death and his activities while in Hong Kong

Here are some resources for researching people who lived in Hong Kong: http://gwulo.com/node/9374

Also worth checking the article "The German speaking community in Hong Kong 1846-1918".
