Bottling Works

By May 13, 2010April 3rd, 2018Travel Journal

Not a whole heck of a lot is left of the old Hoster Brewery in Columbus, Ohio. The most notable surviving and most spectacular buildings in all of the Brewery District is the Worley Building, the former Hoster horse stable. Only a few select others have been renovated. The rest of the survivors are like the building below.

The history on the once powerful and important district of the German working-class, old south end is almost nonexistent. I suspect this structure was built in 1876 and functioned as the old bottling works from clues taken from a number of sources. The old German brewers in Columbus, like Louis Hoster, obviously took pride in their factory facilities as they do show a certain flair in their architecture. The only modern public use for the bottling works happens every October when she opens her doors as a haunted house.
