Falstaff Plant No. 1, Revisited


Update: Six Row Brewing closed and has been replaced with Twisted Root Brewing.

The old Forest Park Brewery, just west of Grand on Forest Park Avenue, became the center of the Falstaff rebirth. These original images from Alvin Griesedieck‘s book show that much of what was originally part of what was rechristened Falstaff Plant No. 1 was demolished. The original core, seen above, no longer stands, but the later buildings, such as the one at far left and the buildings that now house Six Row Brewery are still in existence. It is not surprising someone judged the oldest buildings to be the least salvageable, unfortunately. Alvin Griesedieck claims to have purchased an old army social club across the street from the plant. Does anyone remember that wood frame building?
