Brewery in Rottenburg am Neckar, Germany?

My great-grandfather Jacob Stockburger (1856-1928) was a brewmaster at the Eagle Brewery in Catasauqua, Pennsylvania. His brother Christian was a brewmaster at the Catasauqua Brewery in the same borough. Family legend has it that Jacob brought the recipe for the beer with him from Germany. He immigrated about 1880.

Jacob's immigration papers state that he was from Rottenburg in Wuerttemberg, which is now Rottenburg am Neckar, Baden-Wuerttemberg. Does anyone know of a Stockburger who may have worked at a brewery in Rottenburg am Neckar about 1875-1880?

I think I saw your name as the only known descendant in America of the Claus Stockburger line of descent. A number of years back Claus traced several lines of Stockburgers into America including his own. Tradition is that all Stockburgers descend from Peter Stockburger who in 1450 took the name Stockburger to indicate the place of his birth in Stockburg and went into the Upper Kirnach Valley a litttle over three miles from Stockburg. Are you aware of another line of Stockbergs who came out of Sweden. Can you trace your line to Peter and have you correspomded woth Claus? Any help on the Swedish line would be appreciated. Tom
