Brewers Hill by Foot: The Architecture of Brewing Beer
May 16, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Today’s Brewers Hill neighborhood centers on the rehabilitated Gunther Brewery and National Brewery complexes. The breweries were home to the Gunther, Shaefer, Hamm, and of course Natty Boh labels, and was where the nation’s first “six pack” was invented in the 1940s. The 27 acre brewery site is surrounded by the Brewers Hill neighborhood, which developed between 1915 and 1920 and is replete with rows of brick homes and marble steps. Join David Knipp, a project manager for the redevelopment of the Brewers Hill complex, on a tour of the brewery site in all of its beer-making glory and current buzz of activity.
