Don't Call it A Comeback
The F.A. Poth brewery complex was constructed during the late 19th century into the early 20th century. It was designed by architect Otto C. Wolf. The brewery was built with the hopes that it would be a legacy to the Poth family name.
At it’s peak the brewery was producing 180,000 barrels annually, over three times most breweries output of that era. It contained some of the most advanced technologies in brewing available at the time. The brewery saw great success in the early 1900’s but the passing of its founder Frederick A. Poth and the beginnings of prohibition began to cause problems for the brewery. Although the brewery continued to produce beer during prohibition. Legal troubles plagued the brewery throughout prohibition and mismanagement by Frederick's four sons would ultimately lead to the brewery declaring bankruptcy in 1937.
By the 1940's, producing beer was becoming increasingly difficult due to strict rationing from the impending war. Unfortunately, much of the site was demolished in 1942. The remainder was used for storage and was a home to small businesses. Throughout the 1950’s and 60’s is was used for civil defense storage and was even reinforced in certain areas to withstand nuclear attacks.
In the 1980’s it was home to a small family business and saw some hope in the early 1990’s when it was once producing beer again under the Red Bell label. The Red Bell Brewery went out of business by 2002 due to some financial troubles. The building has sat vacant for the past 16 years and will now be restored by MMPartners.** ALL HISTORICAL INFORMATION WAS GATHERED FROM:
