A few weeks ago (March 2014), we drove around the old Schneider Brewery in Trinidad, CO.
I found the old brewery on Google Maps
The brickwork on the outside looked to be in good shape, but the wooden roof was falling and rotting away.
The building was built in 1888. For more information about this brewery, visit the Schneider Brewing Company Building Page.
It would take a lot to get the old brewery back in shape, but the building is for sale, and I hope someone takes up the project. I think it would be neat to open a brewery there, perhaps taking the old Schneider recipes. I think with the whole craft beer and microbrewery trend, bringing back a vintage beer might be profitable.
I hope you enjoyed this post and these photos!
