Notes
Survey number HAER MD-25
Significance: Built by brewmaster John Frederick Wiessner (1831-1897) to replace his older, smaller brewery of 1863 on the same site. The flamboyant brewhouse, the complex's overwhelmingly distinctive feature and a NE Baltimore landmark, is one of the finest surviving American examples of the Teutonic Brewery style, fondly referred to locally as "Germanic Pagoda." It has stained glass windows, three incredible towers, and an altogether commanding silhouette. Despite its distinction, however, no records have been found identifying the architect.
