Sad But True:

Goenner Brewery


Johnstown, PA. Sometimes you just find yourself at the right place at the right time, or in this case, the wrong time. We got to see the last of the brew house of the Goenner brewery (PA 233) before it met its fate with the wrecking ball. These photographs taken in August of 1983 by Rich Dochter chronicle the fate of one of Pennsylvania's brewery buildings. The Germania brewery across town made it to our "Success Stories" list.
