Grain Belt Brewery

This is a picture heavy post for two reasons: 1) I had Shawn taking my pictures so I got to move around a lot and 2) this is a gorgeous place (one of my favorite in the city). The brewery is no longer active at this site but the gorgeous buildings have been saved and the little gate house is even a library now. It is filled with a big architecture firm and most of the other buildings have artist studios in them. Such a cool place and it totally takes you back in time. I love to imagine what it would have been like to be in a place when it was in full swing. Pull up to that great big building in your carriage. What a cool sight that would have been!
