The Bergdoll brewery was located across Girard Avenue from Brewerytown down 29th St. at Parrish. This is by far the premier example of preservation of brewery architecture in Pennsylvania. Bergdoll's was one of Philadelphia's largest and best known breweries. It lasted until 1920 when Prohibition caused so many of the city's breweries to go out of business. The plant complex is nearly complete and each section has been developed into housing and offices. Above the "Brewery Condominiums" are housed in this unique brewery building designed by Philadelphia's premier brewery architect and engineer, Otto Wolf. Below left is the bottling house Bergdoll built in 1917 and below right is the building that housed the brewery offices which is again used as office space.
