I was intrigued by the Barley Cleaning House; why the strange proportions? Is it still in use, or does it stay because it’s historic? I love how it looks like a castle tower.
But what are these mysterious stone foundations?
Oh, the good old Sanborn maps! They reveal that the old rugged stone foundation was most likely an extra power plant (they had an extra power plant?), with the old tracks still preserved. You can also see that the Barley Cleaning House was attached to some tanks or silos, now gone.
These other massive buildings seem to face away from the street. It seems like the public face of the brewery always revolved around the brew house. But they’re interesting as well.
