Before walking inside it’s apparent that the brewery is a special place. An important piece of the city’s history was preserved when American Icon renovated the 1926 brick diesel power plant building, leaving as much of it intact as possible. One of the generators, cleaned up and painted, faces the bar. The company website provides details of the building’s long history.

The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. Its industrial appearance is matched by the interior decor — brick walls, exposed ceilings and pipes, giant vats called serving tanks.

“We are extremely grateful to be able to create a great selection of beers in a historic building for an amazing supportive community,” says owner Michael Rechter. “We owe all our success to our passionate brewery family.”

"What they have done with the building alone is enough to grant them this award — not to mention the great beer and food."
