In its heyday
Early 1900s. “The Pfeiffer Brewing empire was the brainchild of Conrad Pfeiffer, a German emigrant who started brewing his own beer in 1889. For the next 10 years Pfeiffers business flourished: Detroit was a hot-spot for breweries, and brewing innovation was on the rise. In addition, the beer business was tax-free, and Pfeiffer used the money he was raking in to build a stunning construction plant (which is now gone).”
Just another abandoned building in Detroit.
Wonder if it could be converted into living space or a gallery or something. Doesn’t look like it’s in a very trafficked portion of the city, though. (If there is any.)
