When the brewery was built, two boilers were ordered from the Fiskars ironworks. Transporting the big boilers was in no way simple in those days. It was agreed that they would be transported on the galleass Josefina. In the late autumn, the shareholders of the brewery heard a rumour of Josefina being shipwrecked in front of Vaasa. One of the shareholders, sea captain Adolf Humle, was quickly sent to Vaasa to check whether the rumour was true. He found out that Josefina had actually stayed at the harbour of Pori because the ship owner did not want to endanger the ship in the autumn storms. That is why the boilers had to be brought to Pietarsaari by horse. (Björklund 1993, 14)
