Ewald Bottling Works, Wythe nr N Washington, Alexandria VA (1914-1916)
Charles Leo Ewald was born August 3, 1883 in Virginia (according to his WW1 draft registration). The 1910 Census lists him as a bottler for a brewery. He was listed as a confectioner in 19282, and a merchant of gasoline and oil in the 1930 census. The Ewald Bottling Works shows up in the 1914 and 1916 Alexandria City Directories, although the business may have lasted longer than just those years. The 1916 directory lists Charles L. Ewald as the proprieter of the Ewald Bottling Works, and also lists John A. Ewald as the "supt Robert Portner Brewing Co". I haven't found any proof that Charles and John were related though.
