More on New Albany's 19th-century Market Street brewery.
Local historian Ted Fulmore continues his exploration of brewing history on 10th Street in New Albany: Part 2 - The Rise and Fall of Market Street Brewery.
This has been tremendously exciting for me, and not just because the old-time brewing took place just down the street from where we currently live.
Previous researchers didn’t believe that the two buildings still standing at the site were from the brewing era. Ted’s research indicates otherwise, and history coming alive in this way is a satisfying and soulful phenomenon. Too bad we don't have a firmer idea of what the beers were like -- we can guess, but much has been lost and can never be recovered.
The first part is here: The Rise and Fall of Market Street Brewery (Part 1).
