Brewerytown Philadelphia History

zip code 19121 - Brewerytown

How would you like to live in Brewerytown? Yes, there really is a great neighborhood at the east edge of Fairmount Park, north of Girard Avenue along 31st Street. It extends north to Glenwood Avenue.  In the nineteenth century, 31st Street was lined with the brick buildings of the German lager brewing industry. To the south, along Girard Avenue were the homes of the beer tycoons. When the Girard Avenue Bridge was built in the 1870s, the great Brewer’s mansions began to line Girard Avenue. To the east, workers lived in two story row homes, many of which were constructed by the brewery owners. In the 1880s beer was one of Philadelphia’s top products. 

Originally the beer was stored in caves along the Schuylkill.  With the advent of electricity and refrigeration, special buildings were built to house the beer. The area was close to the railroads.   Although Prohibition ruined the breweries, many of the well-constructed buildings still stand. There were ten breweries originally; the best preserved is the Poth Brewery on the 3100 block of Jefferson Street.
