Wiessner/American Brewery reopening as nonprofit HQs

The Baltimore Sun did such a better job reporting, including a lovely photo gallery, so I'm just going to repost them here.

I'm working on an open house or other tour of the building for the public for Baltimore Beer Week.

Photo shows a seating area carved out of one of the old brewing vessels.

And yes, everyone calls it the American Brewery, but it was built in 1887 as the Wiessner Brewery--more on the building here. Wiessner's monument in Lorraine Park Cemetery has barley sheaves carved all over the monument--mistakenly called wheat by the guidebooks and websites I've seen.
