founded in 1900 not exactly by russian businessman. The name of the person was Jan Wróblewski – typical polish name and surname. Wróblewski came to China – along with many expats workers that came to many assignments, major one being build up of railroad.
He founded brewery to satisfy fellow Europeans in their thirst for beer. Possibly, because he was in minority – and perhaps worked for russians, or catered to their sense of familiarity, he was named/name in russian language equivalent – so it is possible that to the official documents of company incorporation that name came in.
The fact is that Wróblewski was born in Tarczyn – close to Warsaw, which at that time was under short occupation – but from cultural point of view it is Poland for many centuries.
