Lone Star Brewery Fire

Wed Dec 04, 2019 3:19 am

A fire severly damaged the hall at the historic Lone Star Brewery in San Antonio south of Downtown early Sunday morning and firefighters arrived to find heavy fire and smoke in a large hall. Firefighters surrounded the building and contained the fire, therefore preventing it's spread to other buildings. There were no people on the property when firefighters arrived and extensive damage made an arson investigation difficult with the cause of the fire being undetermined. The brewery was a communal place where people gathered, children drank root beer and parents drank beer. It was hoped that the brewery would undergo the same type of redevelopment as the Pearl Brewery and the damaged building was a good candidate due to it's location. It is a sad loss for such a historic structure and I do hope that the brewery can be rebuilt.

Relax, it was an abandoned building and the brewery there shut down in 1996.

The sentence "The brewery was a communal place where people gathered, children drank root beer and parents drank beer." is a direct quote from the linked article, but for accuracy's sake it should have said "The brewery was in the past a communal place where people gathered, children drank root beer and parents drank beer".

It is still sad to see a historic building lost to fire and this is something that was thankfully prevented at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris back in April.
