In Prussia, he apprenticed with Falckenberg [Falkenberg] for five years beginning in 1854, and then circa 1861 went on to Berlin.
Loy says of Brehmer's time in Berlin that he was also employed by "several places, and a portion of the time with Frowitsch [sic] & Sohn." I have been able to find no reference to this firm, but "Trowitsch & Sohn" was a printing firm in Berlin at the time.
At some unspecified point after this, but before his emigration to the US in 1865, he went to "the well-known typefoundry of Haas'sche, in Basel, Switzerland."
