Prohibition Resistance Tour, Part II

NOTE: The 2009 Prohibition Resistance Tour was held during Bockfest, March 6-8. I took the tour on Saturday afternoon. Part II of the tour includes the Kauffman Brewery at 1622 Vine Street.

Built in 1856, the building features two levels of sub-basements, brick archways, massive wooden posts and beams, and intricate "hops" incorporated into the building fa├žade.

It was operated as a brewery until closed by Prohibition in 1919.

Currently owned by City Center Properties, the building now operates as the Guild Haus, housing lofts and commercial space for artists.
