We've created a series of special experiences for Hidden City members only (and their guests) that we're calling BEHIND THE STORY. First on tap is a visit to MM Partners ongoing rehab of the Poth Brewery building in Brewerytown, which Hidden City managing editor Mike Bixler wrote about in June.

But you have to be a member to attend! ***CLICK HERE TO JOIN***

The massive, Rundbogenstil-style building served as the former cold storage facility for F.A. Poth Brewing Company, which closed during Prohibition in 1936. MM Partners’ David Waxman and Aaron Smith, who have developed several ambitious historic tax credit projects (including the adjacent Pyramid Electric Building), are in the process of restoring the property.

Hidden City Project Director Pete Woodall will provide some context on Brewerytown history, followed by Aaron Smith who will share some of the specifics about the adaptive reuse process and bringing the brewery back to life. It's a terrific place to photograph, too, with plenty of graffiti, decay and even a room paved with blue-glazed bricks similar to those found in a few Old City alleys!

The Details: Red Bell Brewery is located at 1500 N 31st St in Brewerytown. Tour will meet on the corner of 31st and Jefferson. Tour time is approximately one hour.

Questions, concerns, conundrums? Email Hidden City project director Pete Woodall at or call him at 267-259-7112.
