American Brewery Building – Baltimore

The American Brewery Building is a unique huge building in a residential neighborhood on the east side of Baltimore. It was opened as a brewery in 1887. It was empty for decades before it was renovated for a non-profit organization. Baltimore Heritage has written about it and made the video below.

I worked nearby in the 1970s and passed it on the bus hundreds of times. There was a full page photo if it in the outstanding book America’s Forgotten Architecture (1976).

The building was also in David Mamet’s 1991 film Homicide.
