Significance: The Schoenhofen Brewery has historic significance as the only major pre-Prohibition brewery in Chicago to have its structure survive intact to the present. Because of the size and prestige of the company (brewer of Edelweiss beer), the large complex is a fine representative of brewery architecture at the turn of the century. The brewery powerhouse is also individually significant as an example of second generation "Chicago School" architecture designed by local architects Richard E. Schmidt and Hugh Garden.
